Rating:★★★★Category:MoviesGenre: Mystery & SuspenseGosh.. this is scary.. i mean for a mom like me to have somebody in the house totally stranger.

Looks can totally deceive. And for a fact pa that the "orphaned" was 33 years old, hiding from a little girl's body (for she has this hypopituitarism)...

PLOT:
Kate (Vera Farmiga) and John Coleman (Peter Sarsgaard) are experiencing strains in their marriage after Kate's third child - "Jessica" - was stillborn. The loss is particularly hard on Kate, who is still recovering from a drinking habit that cost her her job. As a coping mechanism she has scattered Jessica's ashes in their garden around a white rose bush, with a plaque to remember her by.They adopt Esther (Isabelle Fuhrman), a 9-year-old Russian girl they had met, from the local orphanage. While Kate and John's deaf-mute daughter Max (Aryana Engineer) embraces Esther almost immediately, their son Daniel (Jimmy Bennett) is less welcoming.

Rating:★★★★★Category:MoviesGenre: Action & AdventureIt was awesome.. Although some of the scenes are predictable.. I enjoyed watching it.. Channing Tatum is such a hunk.. But it was Marlon Wayans character (Ripcord) that got my full attention.. hehehe


PLOT: The film opens in France, in 1641. The Scotsman Klan McCullen has been accused of selling weaponry to both the Scots and French. Rather than being executed for treason, the jury brands his face with a white-hot mask in order to humiliate him. In the near future, weapons expert James McCullen (Christopher Eccleston) has created a nanotechnology-based weapon capable of destroying an entire city. His company MARS sells four warheads to NATO, and the U.S. Army is tasked with delivering the warheads. Duke (Channing Tatum) and Ripcord (Marlon Wayans) are delivering the warheads when they are ambushed by the Baroness (Sienna Miller), who Duke recognized to be his ex-fiancee Ana Lewis. Duke and Ripcord are rescued by Scarlett (Rachel Ni…

FISRT AND FOREMOST.. I DON'T CONSIDER MYSELF ONE.. I AM BLESSED TO HAVE MY DAUGHTER WITH ME. I AM THANKFUL THAT GOD GAVE ME THE CHANCE TO LOVE ZEUS.
I AM NOT A FAMILY'S DISGRACE JUST BECAUSE I GAVE BIRTH TO ONE BEAUTIFUL SOUL. JUST BECAUSE I AM TO RAISE HER ON MY OWN. JUST BECAUSE ZEUS LEFT ME SO SOON.
I DIDN'T PUT OUR FAMILY NAME TO SHAME. ZEUS AND HIS FAMILY LOVED AND CONTINUES TO LOVE MY DAUGHTER.

This one's good.. one that really suites me.. I mean, aside from the fact that i am taking law.. i somehow can relate to some situations like the BARGAINING for the lesser evil..

The idea of having my professor become my opponent in the near future (if God will let me pass the bar exam), is some kinda thrilling.. hahahaha

well, so far the series is just good for one season with 10 episodes.. i hope that it won't end there.. i love the cast of this series....

well for now here's the plot..

Idealistic public defender Jerry Kellerman does whatever it takes to assist the helpless and disenfranchised, which often leads to clashes in the courtroom presided over by Judge Trudy Kessler, a hard-liner hoping to become the city's next district attorney. Jerry also finds…
