  • The Imitation Game

    The Imitation Game 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 13 Jan, 2015

    Benedict Cumberbatch impressively plays a math genius with social problems. While we’ve this this type of character before, Cumberbatch shines in an intriguingly true story.

  • Wild

    Wild 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 13 Jan, 2015

    Reese Witherspoon plays a damaged woman on a life-changing journey on the Pacific Crest Trail. The audience grows as she hikes more than 1,000 miles from the Mojave Desert in California to Oregon and Washington state. It’s a worthwhile journey for everyone and one of the best films of the year. Laura Dern plays her mother quite splendidly.

  • Planes: Fire & Rescue

    Planes: Fire & Rescue 2014

    ★★ Watched 17 Jul, 2014

    The follow up to last summer’s “Planes” spinoff from the “Cars” universe is just as unnecessary as the first. But with a tribute to firefighters, this one is much more palatable. But it is such a disappointment in regards to the animation. It looks cheap and rushed, worthy of a straight-to-DVD release — if only we were so lucky.

  • The Perks of Being a Wallflower

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 20 Nov, 2012

    One of the best movies of the year based on an excellent book of the same name. Where this movie shines is in the screenplay, which author Stephen Chbosky adapted himself. He also directed the movie. Its his story and vision executed very well for the big screen. Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller are perfect as the leading characters. A must-see movie. "We are infinite."
