  • My Little Pony: Twinkle Wish Adventure 2009

    ★★ Watched 02 Mar, 2015

    There was a time when My Little Pony was known as mindless entertainment for toddlers. I don't think that was ever necessarily true, but Twinkle Wish Adventure does not help my case. While it's not the most mind-numbing of the franchise, or even the era, there's nothing here to challenge kids or to better them in the end.

  • The Imitation Game 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 18 Feb, 2015

    The Imitation Game tells the somewhat obscure story of Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch), the man who essentially invented the modern day computer while helping the British military attempt to decode German messages during World War II.

    Boyhood was the pet project of director Richard Linklater for…

  • Selma 2014

    ★½ Watched 17 Feb, 2015

    As Cinemark’s Oscar Movie Week reaches its midway point, we come to possibly the most controversial film in the running for Best Picture this year. A lot of people are confused as to why Selma was only nominated for Best Picture and Best Original Song. Frankly, I don’t think it should have been nominated for either.

    First of all, from what I understand, the reason it was “snubbed” (I really hate that word, by the way) is because the studio…
