In March 1996, a group of climbers, led by expert mountain guide Rob Hall (Jason Clarke), began their 40-day journey to climb to the top of Mt. Everest in Nepal. This is Rob’s fifth Everest summit, while the other experienced climbers include Doug Hansen, a man who is working three jobs to get by; Jon Krakauer (Michael Kelly), a journalist on an assignment for “Outside” magazine; Yasuko Namba (Naoko Mori), a woman who had already climbed six of the seven major summits; Beck Weathers (Josh Brolin), a family man who has a strong passion for climbing and wants to get …Read More
Director and writer M. Night Shyamalan’s 11th film is possibly his best work since 2004’s The Village. In The Visit, Shyamalan blends classic horror and comedy together to make a film ideal for a fall season release and to show he still has what it takes to be a fine filmmaking in the horror and suspense genres. The Visit is fun and horrifying as it tells an interesting story of anger, regret and fear.
Becca (Olivia DeJonge) and Tyler (Ed Oxenbould) have never met their grandparents before. Their mother (Kathryn Hahn) raised them by herself and had a major falling out …Read More
In 2009, Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart were both starting to break out as actors. He starred in Zombieland and Adventureland, which also starred Stewart, and she had two Twilight films under her belt with three more to go. Their best performances were yet to come in 2010’s The Social Network and 2013’s The Double for Eisenberg and with 2014’s Camp X-Ray and Clouds of Sils Maria for Stewart. Seeing these two actors share the screen again in this stoner action thriller comedy is the perfect way to reunite them. Taking a break from more dramatic roles, Eisenberg and Stewart …Read More
Henry Cavil, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki and Hugh Grant starring in the same film set in the 1960s and directed by Guy Ritchie sounds like a fun time to me – and it is, it really really is.
Based off of the TV show of the same name from the 1960s created by Sam Rolfe, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. focuses on two completely different special agents that must work together in order to take down a mysterious criminal organization that is developing nuclear weapons. CIA agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) is devishly handsome, charismatic and a little more laid …Read More
Never have I ever seen a movie where there was so much talent involved, in front of and behind the camera, all for it to be a huge let down and a total mess. Not only that, but the studio involved offers so much promise when it comes to superhero franchises and boosting both actor and directors’ careers. Which begs the question, what happened with director/writer Josh Trank’s (2012’s surprise hit Chronicle) vision of Fantastic Four and how did it turn in to this?
Fantastic Four opens with promise as we are introduced to young Reed and young Ben who become …Read More
Director Jonathan Demme and writer Diablo Cody teamed up to create a film that is lively, witty, fun, a little crazy and musically delicious. It may not be either of the two’s best film ever, but for what its worth, Ricki and the Flash will please its targeted audience and is led by the immensely talented Meryl Streep.
Ricki Rendazzo (Meryl Streep), her given name is Linda Brummel, is the lead singer of her own rock band Ricki and the Flash based in California. Ricki performs nightly at the local dive bar singing classics by Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Mick Jagger …Read More
Almost 20 years since the first Mission: Impossible film debuted in 1996, Tom Cruise is back in this fifth installment of the franchise and has re-teamed up with director/writer Christopher McQuarrie (2013’s Jack Reacher). A total throwback to Brian De Palma’s original film, bigger stunts and action scenes than ever before and a female supporting character that is equally as badass and tough as Cruise himself, Rogue Nation may be the best film of the franchise yet.
After much skepticism about the IMF (Impossible Mission Force), the secret group of agents was shut down and is now being controlled by the CIA …Read More
