Review by Jordan Hunt for CaryCitizen.

Cary, NC – Epic is a perfectly serviceable family film that kids will most likely enjoy and parents won’t be completely bored for the 90 minutes they’re in the theater. Read more

Movie Review: Star Trek “Into Darkness”

star-trek-review

Movie review by Robert Geiger for CaryCitizen.

Cary, NC – First off, a little disclaimer. I’ve been a Star Trek fan since the original series aired when I was growing up in the 60-70’s. I’ve seen every episode and movie of every series with all the crews and captains over the years. I’m a child of the “space age” inspired by vision and possibility of humanity reaching for the stars. I was eating in my kitchen watching the first man set foot on the Moon. NASA was news and the space program was our hope for Mankind’s future. Read more

Last Moments of the Galaxy Theater

Cary, NC – CaryCitizen reader David Gill shared with us his photographs of the last moments of the Galaxy Theater in Cary.

End of the Galaxy

The Galaxy Theater, at the corner of Cary Towne Boulevard and S.E. Maynard Road, showed art films and foreign films. But the Galaxy owed many months rent to York Properties and closed their doors in November. York plans to redevelop the site around a Harris Teeter supermarket.

And so, the Galaxy came crashing down in a cloud of dust just over a week ago.

Last Moments

David Gill captured the last moments of the Galaxy. Visit Flickr to see the complete slideshow.

Movie Review: Iron Man 3

Review by Jordan Hunt for CaryCitizen.

Cary, NC – Iron Man 3 is the best Iron Man yet. There, I said it. It’s so rare that a third film in a series actually has any juice left, but Iron Man 3 not only improves on the second installment but also serves as a hugely entertaining follow-up to last year’s ridiculously successful The Avengers.

Movie Review: Oblivion with Tom Cruise

Review by Jordan Hunt for CaryCitizen.com.

Cary, NC – Oblivion is the second feature film by director Joseph Kosinski. His previous film was the big budget Disney sequel Tron: Legacy. While that film was visually stunning, pretty much everything else about the movie fell flat for me with its cardboard characters and a story that went absolutely nowhere. Read more

HUGE. Read more

film review by Jordan Hunt for CaryCitizen.

On the surface, Oz: The Great and Powerful looks like another 3D cash grab from the Walt Disney company, who just 3 years ago released another adaptation of a very famous children’s book with Alice in Wonderland. Read more
