Plot Summary: From "La Femme Nikita" and "The Professional" to "The Fifth Element," writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in "Lucy," an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.
Most human beings function as bipartite (body and soul), but there are some individuals living on this planet that function as tripartite (body, soul, spirit). The spirit within is very powerful. We can not access this latent power because we simply do not have the mental power to do so. As humans we use less than 10% of our brain's potential based on the 10% myth. Quite frankly by what I've seen in society, I believe we use far less. On my next show I will explain how this is possible.
On the latest episode of the BIG show, we sit down with the star and director of the upcoming indie film, I, Origins, Michael Pitt and Michael Cahill. The Sundance favorite tells the story of a molecular biologist and his lab partner who uncover startling evidence that could fundamentally change society as we know it and cause them to question their once-certain beliefs in science and spirituality. Plus, we'll have entertainment news and reviews of the latest films including Guardians of the Galaxy and Lucy all on Episode 257 of Keeping It Reel with FilmGordon.

On tonight's show:
Red Maryland's Choose Sugar campaign may be having an effect as Nanny Ken Ulman has revised the restrictions on sugary drinks at public events. Sort of. We'll discuss.
The Republican mayor of Annapolis has a great piece in the local paper showing how elected Republicans can bring fiscal responsibility to a deeply blue area like the city of Annapolis. An example of a winning message for Republicans in the most Democratic parts of the state.
Bringing an elected school board to Anne Arundel county has been a pet project of Red Maryland for years. Now a local candidate for the House of Delegates promises to fight for an elected school board if elected.
The Hogan for Governor campaign is making a push in Montgomery County. Can Hogan top the 40% threshold there? Does he need to do so to win? We'll discuss.
A celebration of the life of James Garner. Decorated war veteran, iconic actor and devoted Raiders fan, James Garner was a national treasure and will be missed. We'll play some clips from his best performances.

Join us as we talk to former Montgomery County School Board member Dr. Alan Cheung. Dr. Cheung was initially a pharmacist, taught medical school students in this subject, and then moved into the political arena with his position on the Board. It was in large part due to Dr. Cheung that Potomac Elementary School became the first public school in the country to offer Chinese Immersion. My own son graduated from this program, fluent in Chinese!! Dr. Cheung has recently turned to community work. He has written for a grant to fund a Chinese Immersion Summer Camp featuring a STEM curriculum. How ingenious! The program was first funded last summer, and was successful in its funding request this time as well. Through careful budgeting (and Dr Cheung giving up his own salary) the program will be able to be funded through the school year, in an after-school program! I met the teachers and students from the summer camp, and they were all most impressive. Only 3 wks of summer camp and already the kids were spouting Chinese.
Listen as we interview Dr. Cheung and find out some of the fascinating details to his programs.
