Luc Besson's latest writing effort, 3 Days To Kill blends high action with sentimental drama. Kevin Costner (Man of Steel, Draft Day) plays international spy Ethan Renner, who is literally running out of time. As a highly skilled assassin with a reputation for excellence with dangerous missions, Renner is highly sought after. But when his healt... Read More

Now, just imagine you're weightless, in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by tiny little seahorses. No matter how I tried, It still didn't come to me. It is however, hard to believe that it has been 10 years since Fox Searchlight Pictures released this little $400,000 film, which broke out and became the little film that could, raking in...

(Nathan M Rose)  05/22/2014 11:42 AM EST
X-Men: Days of Future Past can best be summed up with a quote from one of my favorite movies, Total Recall (1990). "I've got to hand it to you… that's the best mindf**k yet." However, just simply stating this quote is taking the easy way out when trying to write a review of one of the most head-spinning comic book movies to dat... Read More

(Michelle Koesten)  05/15/2014 12:36 PM EST
The Devil's Due, starring relatively unknowns Zach Gilford and Allison McCall, was filmed in a manner that to say the least is not my favorite—found footage. The film reminds me of Paranormal Activity and The Blair Witch Project, although it is thankfully a little less shaky than the latter. Shot on what is supposedly home video and hidde... Read More

Her, starring Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Olivia Wilde, and the voice of Scarlett Johansson, is as unique as they come. The Oscar winner for Best Original Screenplay, set some time in the future, emphasizes humans' disconnection with each other in a computerized society.  In the film, Theodore Twombly (Phoenix), recently separated fro...

I wasn't looking forward to Son of Batman. Of course I know about Batman and have watched all the feature movies, but this was a cartoon for kids. Apparently, I was wrong on that score. This movie was definitely not like the cartoon version I remember as a kid, and it's PG-13-rating-appropriate. The style of the movie reminded me more of a ... Read More
