Movie Review: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

StarWars

Cary, NC — The Force Awakens is the long-awaited continuation of the original trilogy that changed everything almost 40 years ago. Episode VII doesn’t quite reach the levels of those original and beloved films, but, thanks to incredible new characters and a few old friends, I can safely say that Star Wars is back and won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.

Heart

Cary, NC — In the Heart of the Sea is based on the true story that inspired Herman Melvilles’ Moby Dick.

Movie Review: Our Brand Is Crisis

Our Brand

Cary, NC — Our Brand Is Crisis stars Sandra Bullock as “Calamity” Jane, a washed up political campaign manager who gets a chance at redemption against her long-time rival with an election in South America. Despite Bullock’s strong performance, and a slew of engaging and funny actors, Crisis doesn’t have the bite or weight that it needs to be a successful political satire. Read more
