Hot Movie Review

Normally my movie reviews come at the tail end of a goofy story; however, after seeing "Seven Pounds" last night I had to write my review NOW!! This is truly a great movie and is presented in such a way that I had to get on this keyboard and tell you about it. If you happen to read the GO!MOVIES section of the Lubbock Avalanche Journal please disregard the description of this movie, since it is not accurate and will completely confuse you. While Kerns has not reviewed it in person yet, he just uses whatever the studio sends him about the movie and publishes it(I know this for a fact since I have complained to him that these studio reviews are not really what the story is about, and he says he puts them in there until he is able to review it). Here is my review of a really outstanding movie: Will Smith stars as Ben Thomas, a guilt ridden, very smart guy with a secret that is driving him to suicide. He embarks on an extraordinary journey of redemption by changing the lives(with some life saving gifts) of seven strangers. Of course along the way there is a love interest(one of the seven recipients), played by Rosario Dawson. Woody Harrelson portrays a blind piano player who is also one of the recipients. The movie is presented in such a way that you will be intrigued by the minute and will appreciate the outstanding acting of Mr. Smith. Of course with this type of narrative description I would have to rate it ***** five stars. Rated PG-13 for thematic material, some disturbing content and a scene of sensuality(all in good taste). A must see and will probably be nominated for something.
