With the holiday season quickly approaching, we are bound to see some new Christmas movies hit the big screen and some favorites that always replay on television the closer we get to the holiday. But how many of those movies actually show the true meaning of Christmas? It’s refreshing to find out that The Best Man Holiday is not only a silly comedy about friends reuniting, but also a faith-based film that reminds us what’s important around this joyous time.
Director and writer Malcolm D. Lee returns with all nine veteran actors and manages to create the long-awaited reunion after the …
Director/writer Richard Curtis (2003’s Love Actually) steps up his game in the romantic comedy genre by adding a more serious underlying theme in his newest film. His typical rom-com flair is pushed to the side a bit in order to unveil a more mature and serious subject that shows how important it is to live each day as your last.
Of course, there are a few fantastic (not cheesy) romantic moments in the film, but its clear that Curtis decided early on that the main focus would be on father and son.
Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) discovers after an uneventful New Year’s …
Ender’s Game is one of those science fiction novel adaptations that both fans of the book and novices can enjoy. I’d never heard of Orson Scott Card’s novel until this year, but its safe to say that his novel has a major following with several sequels that followed. The book was published in 1994 and now after watching the film, I can understand why it wasn’t filmable until nearly 20 years later.
Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy, but bright teenager is recruited by the International Military led by the stoic Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) and the more sensible Major Gwen …
Last Vegas is an excuse for some Hollywood A-listers to get together, hang out, beat up guys half their age and score a major paycheck. Last Vegas could’ve been the older generation’s version of The Hangover, but instead it succumbs to a cheesy screenplay and mediocre laughs.
Spray-tanned sixty-something Billy (Michael Douglas) spontaneously proposes to his 31-year-old girlfriend (in the middle of a friend’s funeral no less) and calls best friend Sam (Kevin Kline), who is bored of retired life in Florida. Sam then calls stroke-survivor Archie (Morgan Freeman, who seems to be re-playing his role from The Bucket List) and …
The Counselor is an interesting movie because it’s unlike anything director Ridley Scott (2012’s Prometheus) has ever done. But on the other hand, The Counselor is not an outstanding movie, because Cormac McCarthy’s (2007’s No Country for Old Men) screenplay allows for no character development and comes off as pretentious, confusing and at times boring.
A lawyer, (Michael Fassbender, who is only identified as Counselor in the film), wants to impress his beautiful girlfriend (Penelope Cruz) by getting her a 4-carat diamond engagement ring. In order to pay his debt on the ring, the Counselor agrees to one-time drug trafficking deal …

Everyone is calling director Kimberly Peirce’s Carrie a “reimagining” or a remake of the 1976 Brian De Palma film. That may be the case, but after watching the film, comparing Peirce’s film to the 1976 horror classic would be doing the film an injustice. In my opinion, this Carrie is more of an adaptation of the 1974 Stephen King novel of the same name. It’s considerably more violent and I’m happy to say it’s not a shot for shot remake
