A winning sequel concerning the life of Steve Rogers, aka Captain America (Chris Evans), and how he tries to continue to conform to society in Washington D.C. However, when government actions force him into action again once Nick Fury's (Samuel L. Jackson) life is threatened by mysterious forces, he must abandon his hopes of ever living a normal life. Evans is once again a fantastic pick to play the role of Captain America, Scarlett Johansson is also great as Natasha Romanoff, and Robert Redford is a lot of fun as the villain. It is a typical summer popcorn movie that does not try to be anything special, but the plot is just so much better organized than the first film, with some nice twists thrown in for good measure. It does not come close to any kind of greatness, but it is a solid movie that deserves a view.
An insanely well put together mystery thriller about a man (Ben Affleck) who discovers his wife (Rosamund Pike) is missing one morning, and how he begins to exude strange behavior where many start to believe he has something to do with her disappearance. Adapted from the book written by Gillian Flynn, this is simply one of the best movies of the year with a storyline that veers all over the place but somehow director David Fincher ("Seven", "The Social Network") maintains control throughout and creates a total knockout of a movie. The acting is phenomenal, notably Pike in an arresting, star-making performance that should win her an Oscar, but Affleck also proves to be solid in showing many different sides of a fascinating character. The twists and turns involved in the story are phenomenally constructed and detailed, and the movie surprisingly has a great sense of humor as well despite being a very dark and dreary story.
A riveting thriller that comes apart near its conclusion about a Federal Marshall (Liam Neeson) who boards a flight only to discover that there might not just be a terrorist on board, but that he is being framed for this twisted character's impending actions. For the first two-thirds, this is an engrossing thriller, thanks to another strong performance from Neeson, some great supporting turns, and some excellent character development that goes above the norm in these types of movies. For all the good things this movie has, it is a shame it all comes crashing down violently in its conclusion, with a preposterous twist and a finale that basically defies all physics. Still, it is a fairly enjoyable thriller for what it's worth, it is just too bad it does not end on a definitive note.
An arresting, incredibly well constructed documentary on the life of Ayrton Senna, a Formula One race car driver during the 80's and early 90's whose dominance of the sport is largely unknown by the common sports fan. Senna is such a lovable person and you can see why his home country of Brazil rallied around him and treated him like a god, because of his humble nature and intense spiritual belief in God that made him such a riveting public figure. If you know his story already, you know it has a tragic ending attached to it, and the way this is handled is extremely moving and heartbreaking. Quite simply, this is not just a fantastic documentary, but also one of the greatest sports movies ever made.
A quietly intense picture detailing an hour and a half in the life of a successful construction manager (Tom Hardy) and the conversations he has with people on the phone in his car on the highway. Hardy is the only character seen in the movie, and just like Robert Redford in "All Is Lost" and Ryan Reynolds in "Buried", he is that special kind of actor who completely owns this picture from beginning to end. The movie hits a few lulls once in a while but Hardy's character is so richly drawn and complex that it is hard not to be fascinated as to what he's all about and where his life is going when it appears it is unraveling right before his eyes. I have said before that, outside of Daniel Day-Lewis, he is the best actor on the planet, and this movie once again cements this belief.
