If you cannot handle violence or graphic imagery, this movie is not for you. If you believe we live in a perfect American society, and that no government is as honest as ours, this movie may not be your favorite, but if you watch it, you may learn a thing or two about the world around you. I walked into this movie with little knowledge about its director, Dennis Villanueve,...

Every year as the month of October approaches, I begin to anxiously wait for the new batch of horror movies to be released. This year, the one that was the first to catch my eye was directed by the one and only M. Night Shyamalan. After finding out that this movie was directed by the same man that directed "The Sixth Sense", "Signs" and "The Happening" (just to name a few),...

First off all the bashing and negative publicity that this movie and book have been getting is ridiculous and unnecessary. I have not read the book and I’m sure many things that were probably important to the story were left out of the movie. “50 Shades of Grey” the movie where I was the only male in the movie theater who was not accompanied by someone else.

“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” is what you expect from a sequel to a very successful reboot, but with all the new characters and information they threw at us they had enough for another movie in there. The cast was great like the first film, and they use every special effect they could get their hands on to make this movie beautiful visually. Andrew Garfield, who plays Peter...
