SORT BY Relevancy
The Life of Pi, was for me a fine movie. In it a young man survives a shipwreck and relates his story to a reporter who would like to write about it. He tell the reporter a fantastic story of his survival in a life boat shared for much of the time with a ferocious tiger. Investigators, seeking to understand why the ship went down do not believe the original story so Pi tells them an alternate story more believable than the first. We are never told which story might actually be factual but Pi asks the reporter which one he like better. The reporter answers the more fantsastical one! Herein lies the core of tonight's discussion. Does science, facts and perhaps truth have any role in the stories we live by or do we simply live by the stories we like best? Does the conflict between facts and wishful thinking have any role in today's political struggles?
Best-selling author Yann Martel, who penned the internationally acclaimed novel Life of Pi will be our guest. Last month the film version of the book won 4 Academy Awards, including Best Director for award-winning director Ang Lee. Yann will be chatting about his next book project, along with what it's been like to have a book receive so much Oscar praise and support.
A hollywood legend, an 80's action staple remade, and a movie many claim to be the next Avatar, that's this week in a nutshell (thanks Austin Powers for not letting me use that phrase without quoting you). We take a look at the Anthony Hopkin's starring biopic Hitchcock then we join a pack of Wolverines in Red Dawn and last but certainly not least, we find out if Life of Pi is a new classic or just a treat for the eyes.
On this week's ScreenPicks Movie Show, we review five new films. They include: Hitchcock, Rise of the Guardians, Life of Pi, Red Dawn, and Rust and Bone.

BACKGROUNDS & ASSETT SEARCHES
We conduct all types of Backgrounds from locating missing persons (heirs of an estate) to loved ones and family members.
Missing persons and family members, we locate them by searching computer databases, searching prisons, homeless shelters, Salvation Army, Social Network Sites like Facebook, etc.
Once we locate that person, we make contact with them and make sure that they want to be contacted by the client?
Background checks are often requested by employers on job candidates for employment screening, especially on candidates seeking a position that requires high security or a position of trust, such as in a school, hospital, financial institution, airport, and government. These checks are traditionally administered by a government agency for a nominal fee, but can also be administered by private companies. Background checks can be expensive depending on the information requested. Results of a background check typically include past employment verification, credit history, and criminal history.
