Run to see Run All Night

Review by Melissa Keir 

Liam Neeson has become the man with a gun you want on your side. In movies like the Taken series or A Walk Among the Tombstones. I give Run All Night an A.

Best friends growing up Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris) and Jimmy Conlon (Liam Neeson) lived the life of Gangsters. Shawn was a mob boss and Jimmy was his hit man. Both were family men with sons who meant the world to them. The difference is that Jimmy walked away from his family because of his shady lifestyle. When he’s forced to kill Shawn’s son, their friendship is destroyed. Now Jimmy must keep his son alive. If protecting his son isn’t enough, then he’ll return to his roots and destroy his best friend before Shawn kills Jimmy’s son.

The action is fast paced and feels like a Soprano episode. As a parent, I would do anything to protect my child. Mother bear, Tiger mom, I’m not going to let someone hurt my child. Yet there’s a moral to the story about the lifestyle. Jimmy’s son grows up with morals because Jimmy walked away, where Shawn’s son is a mess. Was it because Shawn was always there to save his son as a helicopter parent? Being a parent means letting your child fail and learn from their mistakes not protect them from all failures.

Liam’s incredible as a bad guy doing what’s right. The gun play and physical action sequences astound, even at his age. And while I do miss the more fun and carefree Liam from movies like Love Actually, at least he’s not crashing planes like Harrison Ford.

Quest for Honor follows Runak Faranj, a former teacher and tireless activist, as she works with local lawmen, journalists and members of the KRG to solve the murder of a widowed young mother, protect the victim of a safe-house shooting, eradicate honor killing and redefine honor. - Mary Ann Bruni -

WOI Special with Acclaimed Director, Alejandro Monteverde

Welcome to BTR's featured World of Ink Network. Today, Monday March 23rd (4pm Eastern - 3pm Central - 2pm Mountain - 1pm Pacific) we have Acclaimed Director Alejandro Monteverde as our guest. He will be chatting about his newest movie LITTLE BOY (starring Kevin James, Michael Rapaport, Jakob Salvati, Emily Watson, and Ali Landry, and is produced by heavyweight TV and movie producer, Mark Burnett).

Set during the height of World War II, the film centers on a little boy, Pepper Flynt Busbee (Jakob Salvati), who is willing to do whatever it takes to end World War II so that he can bring his father home. Through his struggle, Pepper learns lessons of morality, such as the value of self sacrifice, how to face the town's bullies (at times hilariously depicted), the importance of racial equality, and many lessons in between.

This heartwarming family film expertly captures feelings similar to those recognizable in so many great American movies.

Meet Isabella Pimpinella -

Monday, March 23, 2015

Meet Isabella Pimpinella - Kids love her - Free on Kindle - Monday & Tuesday - March 23 & 24


Isabella Pimpinella‘s Magical Potion is a fun imaginative read for the early reader as well as the more advanced. The true test of bravery begins with thirteen little girls and a cat named Bogart who have the time of their life at the greatest sleepover ever. It’s not only fun it's magical. 

Magical Potion Chant
 “Here we are

Ready at last.

To make our potion

A potion of the past.

A potion for now

A potion for then.

Please give us the okay

To be on our way!”

Suddenly, the air became still. An amazing quiet filled the room. Even
Twyla was quiet. Isabella nodded for Bogart to begin. Bogart looked at
Isabella. Then, everything happened so fast. Isabella couldn’t believe
her eyes. Bogart jumped right into the kettle. Isabella was shocked by
what came next. Bogart was doing the backstroke and waving to everyone.

Twyla couldn’t stop laughing. Isabella wanted to laugh but didn’t.
Instead, she began to count.

“One, two, three

Please dear Bogart

Come out, Come out.

The show is now over

It’s time to begin

We all can see

You really can swim.”

There was a big splash and Bogart jumped out.

Again, Isabella began to chant.

“Bones, bones

Come to me

Inside our potion

Is where you want to be.”

Each junior witch was given a small bag, filled to the top.

“Garlic and onions will give it some taste.

Milk and flour will make it like paste.

Corn and nuts will be a plus.

And if that’s not enough,

We’ll put in more stuff.

Ice cream, eggs, raisins and honey.

Now it’s beginning to smell really funny.”

 The final chant began:

“Lizards, lizards

It’s time to leave.

So hurry to the top

And out you will pop.

Whoosh, whoosh, whoosh

Please swim to the top.

And out you will come

Plop, plop, plop!”
