‘Finding Vivian Maier’ uncovers a never forgotten, but never known, life of long lost photographer

Her story is unorthodox and her photography is extraordinary, but would she have wanted the world to know it? Maier, who passed away in the Chicago suburbs in 2009 at the age of 83, lived her life as a nanny on the east coast and, little known, arguably as one of the world’s best street […]

‘Turn Blue’ from The Black Keys gives listeners a bombastic blast from the past

‘Turn Blue’ from The Black Keys gives listeners a bombastic blast from the past

For a two-man music group, the sound that the Black Keys has packed into their new album, “Turn Blue,” is nothing short of spectacular. To even be consistent with their previous work was a tall order, considering their solid body of work which includes albums such as “Thickfreakness” and “Brothers” and how their previous album, […]

‘X-Men Days of Futures Past’

X-Men Days of Futures Past, the prequel to X-Men First Class, is a mind bending movie that puts time travel into perspective.

‘Godzilla’ dissapoints the years of anticipation

‘Godzilla’ dissapoints the years of anticipation

  In the continuance of the multi-decade long series, Godzilla definitely did not live up to all of the hype that came with the commercials.

‘The Lunchbox’ delivers savory satisfaction

‘The Lunchbox’ delivers savory satisfaction

There’s a whimsical yet hardening impression left by the dramatic romantic comedy ‘The Lunchbox.’ Although its themes were predictable as far as rom-coms go, the film still managed to pull off those ideas of “finding new love” and “one in a million odds” in a pleasing way. As conventional as the ideas were, the unconventional […]

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′

Each movie that Marvel creates based off of their endless list of super heroes seem to get better and better. From the quality of cast list, script, special effects, and story line will The Amazing Spider-Man 2 follow the tradition of great Marvel movies that is expected? Many viewers had trouble accepting Andrew Garfield who […]

‘Rivers in the Wasteland’ gives same rhythm, new soul

Music by Needtobreathe has topped my favorite playlists for years. Their playful instrumentals and unique (and very southern) vocals caress my soul. This band has walked the thin line between secular and Christian music for their entire existence, which has broadened their audience greatly. Their most recent soundtrack was released just a little over a […]

‘Under the Skin’ proves to be a thought-provoking sci-fi film

Every year in movie history, there is one film will amaze its audiences with breathtaking visuals and thought-provoking ideas. At the end, it will leave them with a sense of wonder for the art work’s meaning. To cite some example of those kind of films: anything Stanley Kubrick ever made in his career, Alejandro Jodorowsky’s […]

‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ excels in character development, plot

Despite the fact that my friends’ hype was probably more than my own, the joy of going to the newest Marvel movie remained for this comic fanatic. As I walked in to Hollywood Theater half an hour early to ensure for a good spot in the the full and waiting theater line with my popcorn […]

‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ glows with charm, unconventionality

Wes Anderson gained a lot of fame via his last movie, Moonrise Kingdom. In my social sphere, it became somewhat of a classic: everyone had seen it, everyone had loved it, everyone always talked about it. But to be honest, I didn’t think it was that great. Moonrise Kingdom had that quirky charm that is associated with Wes […]

Highly-anticipated ‘Divergent’ entertains audiences as worthwhile sci-fi thriller

I was not sure what to expect as I settled into the red velvet upholstery of my chair at Forum 8 movie theater. Though I hadn’t read the books, flashy previews for the recently released science-fiction film Divergent captured my attention and lead me to purchase a ticket, landing me in the middle of the […]

Fourth season of ‘The Walking Dead’ comes to a close

The apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead, based on the comics, concluded its fourth season this past Sunday. Broken into two parts, the second half of season four begins with seeing how Michonne, Rick and Carl fared after the governor’s attack on the prison. The episode was interesting mostly because of the flashbacks to Michonne’s […]

Perry bombs with ‘The Single Moms Club’

Perry bombs with ‘The Single Moms Club’

Another Tyler Perry movie, yes, I know. This man seems to always have a movie out. And either you really like his movies, or you really don’t. I have found that a lot of his movies, especially lately, are quite interesting, and I’m someone who likes his movies. That’s why I was excited to watch […]
