Wednesday's Wonderful Review

This week I wanted to do another
"Wednesday's Wonderful Review."
I have been blessed with the opportunity of doing some really fun reviews lately.
 And I mean REALLY FUN!
Today, I wanted to share with you a new movie coming out called
Game of your life
(Presented by Walmart & P&G)
This movie is set to air on
NBC Friday, December 2nd at 8/7c
so be sure to mark your calendars.

First, check out the trailer for Game of your life found {HERE}. You might recognize Lea Thompson from Back to the Future. She plays Dr. Abbie Lambert in Game of your life. Also, Titus Makin Jr. plays Zach Taylor (main character) and you could see him as David on the TV series Glee. There are some really great characters to watch in this movie.

Here is the synopsis...

"When industrious high school gamer Zach Taylor lands a prized scholarship to the prestigious Digital Institute of Game Design (DIGD), his future breaks wide open. The opportunity to study under gaming legend Marcus Bentton and alongside the country’s most creative minds will certainly propel him into a successful career as a video game designer. That is, if he can pass the infamous freshman project that eliminates more than half of the class within the first three months.

Paired with brilliant yet socially awkward teammates Phillip and Donald, the trio persuades Sara Ramirez – a determined and striking team leader with whom Zach has a history (and possibly a future) – to join their team. Working off-campus in the teched-out Lincoln Alley loft, the four set out to involve the entire campus in a quirky new social interactive game. But as the group becomes entrenched in the project, Zach learns that his father Billy, a widower, is facing growing financial woes at home. To help out, Zach accepts an opportunity to work directly with Marcus Bentton on a secretive side project that seems too good to be true. The effort requires nearly all of Zach’s time and energy, which he should be devoting to the project. Struggling to keep it together, Zach is torn between his responsibility to his team, his admiration for Bentton and a chance to help his father.

Everything comes to a breaking point when Zach’s team threatens to remove him from the group and the deceptive truth behind Bentton’s project comes to light. With the guidance of Professor Abbie Lambert, Zach must make a decision that not only affects his future, but the lives and livelihoods of the people around him as well. It’s a revealing story that recognizes the magnitude behind the choices we make and the importance loyalty plays in making good decisions."

I was given special access to watch and review this movie before everyone else. Yippee! It was definitely a "family movie night" because I got to cuddle up next to my husband. I'm pretty sure that the movie I viewed wasn't completely edited since it did need some tweaking here and there (Ex: Music and transitions). However, the story made up for the minor mistakes. I loved Zach Taylor's character the most. He was so positive and kind towards others. I felt that he had a tough decision to make but he continued to be honest with himself and others. I also loved the relationship and connection he had with his dad. We need our families to get through these hard times. Overall, it was a pretty good movie and I'm glad I had the opportunity of watching it with my husband.

Be sure to check out Game of your Life on facebook {HERE} and twitter found {HERE}. Make it a "family movie night" and watch Game of your life on December 2nd. Hope you enjoy it!
