The title really should be “Dumb and Dumber Idea”, which describes the progression of this tedious and wholly unnecessary sequel.
“Birdman” should be seen by any and everyone who says they enjoy movies, because whether you love it or hate it, it will get under your skin, burn itself into your memory, and demand an emotional, visceral response, as all true art in any medium does.
More character study than thriller, “Nightcrawler” is riveting thanks to the talents of its star, Jake Gyllenhaal.
“Before I Go to Sleep” features solid performances from its cast, but not enough originality in its execution.
“John Wick” is certainly more style than substance, but it’s good fun for the action aficionado.
“Fury” is a gruesome but gripping piece of film making.
“Dracula Untold” has a few thrills and chills, but for the most part could have remained untold.
“Gone Girl” is a mesmerizing work of film, powered by a career-defining performance by Rosamund Pike.
Earnest and heartfelt, “The Good Lie” is a fine film inspired by true stories of courage, survival, and loss.
Smart, stylish, and entertaining from open to close, “The Equalizer” works thanks to yet another powerhouse Denzel Washington performance.
