This movie should have been awesome B-grade bubble gum action fun. Instead, it was a complete failure and a guarantee that, later this year, we will be calling a Hercules movie by Brett Ratner the best Hercules movie of the year. Think about that.
Watch 300, Gladiator and Braveheart – the three movies that The Legend of Hercules unsuccessfully tries to copy. You aren’t missing anything here.

After a long period of lackluster Disney animated efforts, the studio roared back to life with the double shot of Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph. Now, in 2013, they have released what might be the best “traditional” Disney animated movie in years. You would be excused for thinking that the movie is a carbon copy of Tangled, but there is much more to Frozen than what even that solid animated effort provided.

At the end of the day, Silver Linings Playbook is another solid movie by David O. Russell. He brings out the best in his actors and both Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence should pick up some nominations for their performances. Don’t count out Cooper's chances for winning some either, although it has been a big year for lead male actors. The story is great with a fantastic ending and everything comes together nicely. If you want a feel good movie with some of the best acting of the year, you will find it in Silver Linings Playbook.
"Shame" is about dependency, Brandon dependent on his addictions, leading him to the depths of the cold New York City nights. Sissy is dependent on her brother to help her feel safe and wanted. The siblings are damaged goods. At one point Sissy tells Brandon they are broken but they can still be fixed. That is the message of this story.
To say that "Shame" is emotionally devastating is an understatement. Michael Fassbender is spectacular as Brandon and deserves award…
