Grudge Match Review

Two old boxing rivals (Robert De Niro, Sylvester Stallone) come out of retirement for one final match. The fight, set to take place 30 years after their last match, sees the two men facing off mentally just as much as physically. After a solid decade of Rocky Balboa and other boxing action movies, the sport had fizzled from the big screen. We’ve had many years of sci-fi, hobbits and animated...

Mr. Pip Review

A war rages on in the province of Bougainville in Papua New Guinea. A young girl becomes transfixed by the Charles Dickens novel Great Expectations, which is being read at school by the only white man in the village. The film starts off as per usual. It introduces the time and current conflicts that surround the area in which the village is set. The location is authentic and actors presumably soug...

She joins forces with others like her and heads into a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld.  Creating a fantasy film that appeals mostly (and only) to teenagers ins’t an easy task. There has been much criticism of this genre that isn’t easy to ignore. Thi...

We see the ups and downs of the magical Smurfs trying to get by and explore the real world. With Smurfette’s (Katy Perry) birthday approaching, this gives her time to think about her origin and remember the fact she isn’t a true born smurf. Gargamel (Hank Azaria)...
