Real Steel Review

Real Steel
In Theaters and IMAX Now
We all love to go to see a movie and come out feeling better than we went in. I really am not the boxing type, so I was a little bit on the fence when I heard about Real Steel. I knew my husband and sons would love it off the bat, but I did have my own doubts about it. My family and friends attended the screening of  Real Steel. It did not disappoint. 
Hugh Jackman stars at the washed up boxer with little hope. Meanwhile he has lived his life without being in care of his young son. One day he gets a call that his son’s mother has passed away and he has to step up as the father. 
Father meet son. Son meet father. Although, Charlie(the father), still trying to figure out a way to come out on top, deals when it comes to his new taken on son and tries to make it worth his while. The son, being an avid boxing fan, suspects something is going on, but takes the ride.

 And so the story begins as they get to know each other and the father tries to put his life back on track.

This movie takes place in the future, well actually, the not too far off future, where boxing is done by high tech robots. 
Hugh Jackson fights for more than winning at boxing in this movie. 
As he readies Atom (a robot who saves his son) a reconstructed robot, for the big boxing match.
I must admit that I really did enjoy this movie and the underlying story of a dad and son that end up trying to win more than a boxing match. 
You may want to grab a few extra napkins when you go for the popcorn, there is big tissue alert! You will walk out of this action packed heart warming story, feeling good!
Real Steel is directed and produced
 by Shawn Levy(“Night at the Museum” and “Date Night”). It stars Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly, Dakota Goyo, Anthony Mackie and Kevin Durand. The IMAX Experience has been digitally re-mastered, including image and sound quality with crystal clear images, laser aligned and theater geometry to equal the world’s most immersive movie experience. Real Steel is in theaters and IMAX now. Don’t miss out!

Supreme Protein Carb Conscious Quadruple Layer Protein Bars

 Supreme Protein Carb Conscious Quadruple Layer Protein Bars 9 Pack
Supreme Protein Carb Conscious 
Quadruple Layer Protein Bars

I think in this fast paced world we are all looking for some healthy ways to hit our protein intake during the day. Missing protein can result in poor health, thinning hair and weakness. I, personally am always on a quest for a great source of protein. Busy lifestyles lead to bad food choices and lower protein intake. I was so pleased to have the opportunity to test out Supreme Protein’s products. I had the chance to sample three flavors of bars: Peanut Butter Pretzel Twist, Caramel Nut Chocolate and Peanut Butter & Jelly. I honestly cannot tell you which one I liked the best. It was a three way tie. Hands down I have to say that Supreme Protein bars are delicious. You almost forget you are eating a protein bar. I have been a fan of protein bars for the past 6 years and have tried many, many brands of bars. I really did not expect that Supreme Protein would be any different than the brands I had already tried. I was pleasantly surprised. I think the thing I liked most (besides the delicious taste) was that there was no whey aftertaste. I enjoyed the bar and that was where it ended. I did not have a foul taste in my mouth for the next 2 hours. That in itself sold me! Now, as far as the variety of tastes go, you just can’t go wrong. I have never seen Peanut Butter & Jelly before. I am happy to say, it was as delicious as both the Caramel Nut and the Peanut Butter Pretzel Twist. Each bar has 15grams of protein plus essential vitamins and minerals. It all adds up to one delicious protein bar. Supreme Protein bars are available at CVS, Wal-Mart, Wallgreens, GNC, and thousands of other retail locations.
