Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Andy Serkis is back, covered in CGI fur, and doing an amazing job. A simple plot, emotional storytelling, and solid directing make this film one to see.

Safety Not Guaranteed

A little independent film. I missed in it theaters, but caught up with it on Netflix. Yes, some course language and some offensive behavior. But, on the whole, a sweet, meaningful, and enjoyable film.

Tom Cruise is 52 years old, and he's the action hero of another Sci FI movie. Do we really want to see this? Uhmm, actually ... just watch the One Minute Review.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

The last time Patrick Stewart was involved in a franchise handing-off time-bending movie, it didn't go so well (see: Star Trek, Generations). However, he didn't have Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Bryan Singer, Wolverine, Quicksilver, or even a South Pole Elf to back him up. How do things go this time? Let the One Minute Review be your guide.

Transcendence

Johnny Depp does it again. What is it he does? Makes a bad movie.
