Movie Review: AIR

3Director: Christian Cantamessa
Starring: Norman Reedus, Djimon Hounsou and Sandrine Holt
Run Time: 95 minutes
Rating: PG-13

Bauer (Norman Reedus – no stranger to playing sarcastic, post-apocalyptic roles) and Cartwright (Djimon Hounsou), are technicians entrusted with the task of keeping “sleepers” (people who are believed to be the last hope for mankind) alive in their sleep tanks.  This task proves difficult when they are restricted to cycles of available air.  The two are the only people at their underground location and only have 1 hour 59 minutes each cycle to run diagnostic checks on the sleeper tanks before locking themselves in their own tanks to hibernate for 6 months until it’s safe to emerge above ground again.  Holt plays Abby, who seems to be haunting Cartwright during their cycles; there’s no interaction between her and Bauer.  When an unforeseen issue presents itself, Bauer and Cartwright have to race against time before their limited air supply runs out.

I was really excited about watching this movie because I’m biased and love Norman Reedus.  So I wasted no time renting it on my Apple TV.  The concept for the movie was interesting, and definitely hard to watch at times if you’re at all claustrophobic (which I am).  I did find myself anticipating some huge action sequence that just never came.  It’s a bit hard for that to happen, though, when the cast is limited to three actors.  That being said…I feel like the movie was a bit slow for me.  Doesn’t take away from the great performances from Reedus and Hounsou though.  Bauer reminded me a lot of Daryl Dixon (Reedus’ character from The Walking Dead), which was great and he obviously works great with Robert Kirkman (producer of Air and creator of The Walking Dead), who’s great at creating post-apocalyptic entertainment.

So…would I say this was my favorite movie of all time?  Not at all.  However, it’s definitely work checking out.  It always keeps you on the edge of your seat to watch someone work against a clock under dire circumstances.  Check it out, and let me know what you think!

Air can be found on On Demand and Digital HD as of August 14, 2015 and can also be found in select theaters (see below):

Day 12 of My Favorite Things

april

Day 12 of my favorite things is being dedicated to one of the most visited sites in my search history.

A few years ago, I met a girl named Keisha at a Florida Marlins fan event, and we became really good friends.  We found out that we had more in common than a love for baseball and ended up going to a fan convention for one of our favorite TV shows…The Vampire Diaries.  While there, she introduced me to one of her awesome friends, Raechel, who obviously also loves the show.

About a year ago, I noticed that they were doing on air reviews for popular TV shows on a website called Variety Radio Online, so I asked how they got involved. They introduced me to Amy, who runs the site and that was it! Keisha, Rachel & I now do On Air reviews together for The Vampire Diaries and The Originals ( I also write blogs for those shows), and we each also do other show reviews.

In the year that I’ve been involved with the site, I can’t say I’ve met anyone else in person YET, but I’ve been accepted into this incredible little family and I love it.  Everyone is so helpful and we’ve all become fast friends. I’ve learned so much, and I’m gaining so much experience in the field I’m going to school for. It’s a win/win!

Enough of my rambling! What are you still reading this for?? Go check out Variety Radio Online and their social media sites (links below) and I know you’ll love it as much as I do. Chances are, some of us are reviewing your favorite shows! So go love it and share with the your friends and fellow TV lovers!
