Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity” is the type of film that would serve more purpose hanging from a nail on someones living room wall as a valuable piece of art than in theaters. The 3D feature offers very little to audience members outside of its stunning atmospheric appeal. Starring the infamously talented George Clooney and Sandra Bullock [...]

It has a cohesive plot, snippets of romance, great action scenes and Matt Damon decking people with a cyborg like strong man suit on. Utopia, [...]

This time set in Tokyo Japan, the once justice serving mutant finds himself in a situation where another life must be saved, only this [...]

Fruitvale Station

Director Ryan Coogler brings the story of Oscar Grant to the public eye in the brilliantly filmed biography “Fruitvale Station.” Though there are a handful of similar untold stories, Coogler does all of them justice by intentionally or unintentionally giving those affected by these or other closely related events, a rallying cry against police brutality and [...]
