By the end of In the Heart of the Sea you will be rooting for the big underwater mammal to end this lackluster whale tale.
T.M. Powell of CW44 counts down ‘The 4’ best movie stoners of all time.
Larson has received serious Oscar Buzz for her role in Room as Joy and rightfully so, but her young costar Tremblay carries the film as her son Jack who is a product of the sexual abuse Joy endures from her captive over a seven year period.
As beautiful as The Good Dinosaur is on film, the story lacks characters you care about and for once Pixar forgets to make a connection with its audience. The Good Dinosaur is a rare misstep from the leaders in film animation.
Creed goes back to the intimate character study basics that made the original Rocky a classic, but still manages to feel big with the best boxing scenes ever put on film backed by an Oscar worthy performance from Sylvester Stallone as the aging Rocky Balboa.
Saoirse Ronan owns her role as Ellis and will solidify her place in young Hollywood as Oscar buzz will likely surround her work in Brooklyn.
The Hunger Games franchise could have been your regular uninspired Young Adult series, but Jennifer Lawrence comes strong and makes sure we see the pain and vengeance in Katniss’ eyes in Mockingjay Part 2.
In today’s media where the focus is on no talent reality stars and their egotistical lifestyles, Spotlight gives the audience a past glimpse of real reporting that can change the world we live in.
Secret in Their Eyes plays like an episode of Law and Order with the obvious revenge filled twists and events you can see coming from a mile away.
Rogen’s hilarious role makes The Night Before worth the price of admission even if the rest of the film is lacking that special something that makes it a groundbreaking comedy.
