The Filmosophers Movie Talk

At the Orpheum is The Theory Of Everything, starring Eddie Redmayne in a The Theory Of Everything posterprobable Oscar nominated performance as astrophysicist Steven Hawking, "who falls deeply in love with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde. Once a healthy, active young man, Hawking received an earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of - time." "A brainy bio that exerts a gravitational pull on the heartstrings."- Joe Williams, St. Louis Post Dispatch.

Chris Busch has reviews of three intriguing new films movie fans will be interested in: The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, in "an intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man who was credited with cracking the so-called unbreakable codes of Germany's World War II Enigma machine."

Also: Wild, starring Reese Witherspoon in the true story of Cheryl Strayed. "After years of reckless, destructive behavior, Strayed makes a rash decision. With absolutely no experience, driven only by sheer determination, Cheryl hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone." "Imitation Game and Wild are two of the best movies of the year." - Chris Busch, Filmosopher

The third film: Top Five, written and directed by Chris Rock. Mingling echoes of Woody Allen and Dick Gregory Top Five digs under the surface of show business, politics, rap, and the exigencies of being black."

We'll also cover other new releases and more, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays 12:30, again Sunday mornings 11:30. "There should be no boundaries to human endeavor. We are all different. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there's life, there is hope." - Steven Hawking, The Theory Of Everything
