  • 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 Lost World: Jurassic Park

    The Lost World: Jurassic Park 1997

    ★★★★ Rewatched 29 Sep, 2013

    A solid sequel with a little more blood and guts.
