    Ernest & Celestine – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview Despite living in separate worlds, in which one world fears the inhabitants of another, a mouse and a bear find themselves developing an almost parent/ child friendship. Review (with Spoilers) This was an academy award nominee amongst The Wind Rises, and the overrated Frozen, and unfortunately wasn’t available to me around the time of the ceremony. But after watching it, I’m starting to think perhaps I should have a stronger interest in French cinema. For in the movies I’ve seen thus far from the country, they all have a beautiful complexity, even horror films like Martyrs, which perhaps solely comes from being too accustomed to America cinema. Leading to the question: despite an Oscar nomination, is it worth seeing this film? Community Rating: 0.00% (0) - No Community Ratings Submitted.

    Trainwreck – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Nevermind the idea of this being the funniest movie of the year, for it very well might be the funniest movie in years. For truly, as offensive as some may find this, and despite one 10 to 15-minute block of time I was ready for the movie to just be over, I do believe a star has truly be been born, and I don’t just mean Amy Schumer either.

    The Spectacular Now – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    This week I found myself seeing a movie featuring Shailene Woodley of Secret Life of the American Teenager and The Descendants fame; Brie Larson, who I mostly know from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and The United States of Tara; and the familiar faces of Jennifer Jason Leigh and Andre Royo. The main draw though was a trailer attached to The Way, Way Back I believe, and since Shailene Woodley is starting to prove that her work on Secret Life was more due to bad writing than whatever skills she may possess, I find myself following her career a bit.

    Don Jon – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    If you are one of the few who haven’t been force fed a Don Jon commercial, advertisement or trailer in recent months, I’m pretty sure the NSA probably doesn’t know where you are. With that said, though, it is hard to not be interested with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson and even Tony Danza, who hasn’t really been in much as of late, in the movie. Also, considering this is Gordon-Levitt’s first go at writing and directing a feature film, there is also that added bit of intrigue. Community Rating: 0.00% (0) - No Community Ratings Submitted.

    Camp X-Ray – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview A newly enlisted young woman finds herself interacting with an accused terrorist. One who leads her to question if whether the treatment, and storage, of these terrorist is right. Trigger Warning(s): 9/11 Imagery Review (with Spoilers) For 2 years Kristen Stewart hasn’t made a movie, and this seems like a good return. For after Twilight, and her personal scandal, this is the type of film which reminds you that she is an actress first, and all other labels second. Though while I’m sure most of the focus will be on Stewart, it is really the message the movie has which makes this film interesting. Now, whether the message is interesting enough to make this film worth seeing, well look below. Community Rating: 0.00% (0) - No Community Ratings Submitted.

    Short Term 12 – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview A hidden gem which doesn’t make light of, or over-dramatizes, the state of each character, and truly is one of those films you wish to share and see get prestige. Trigger Warning(s): Cutting & Attempted Suicide Community Rating: 0.00% (0) - No Community Ratings Submitted.

    The Book Thief – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview With a holocaust backdrop, The Book Thief explores a young girl’s world filled with tragedy, but with people who inspire love, hope, and perseverance. Review (with Spoilers) After seeing three films featuring slavery the horrors of slavery, it is only right to throw a holocaust film in there. However, it should be noted that The Book Thief isn’t a rated R picture, so it may give you an idea of what is going on, but never gets so gritty you feel that a young person couldn’t go for it would leave them with nightmares. With that said, though, don’t think this film doesn’t have the potential to bring tears to your eyes. Community Rating: 0.00% (0) - No Community Ratings Submitted.
