An average, ultra-sad movie concerning a suicidal brother (Bill Hader) and his twin sister (Kristen Wiig), who grew up in a very dysfunctional household, and how they reconnect many years later after a tragedy occurs, forcing them to try to figure out where their lives went wrong. This is a simple movie and one that possesses strong dramatic tones, but ultimately it lacks the comedic punch that would have made it a better, more balanced film. The two central performances from Hader and Wiig are outstanding, and they make this thing almost watchable by themselves, but ultimately it comes across as a little too needy on an emotional level, just like the characters themselves.
An arresting, extremely fascinating look documenting the divulging of sensitive government information by whistleblower Edward Snowden, and how he and the United States reacted once it became public. You do not have to agree with the politics of the situation to still be utterly hooked by what is put on the screen. It is no secret that the government spies on its citizens and has way to much access to what we do in our own time. Whether you agree with Snowden's decision or not, this is still a very well-done movie with the intent to inform the public that invasion of privacy is a very real thing that is only getting worse over time.
A forgettable noir concerning a veteran, beat-up detective (Liam Neeson) who takes on a case of a missing woman in New York City for a wealthy drug kingpin. While Neeson is his regular outstanding self, the rest of the supporting cast is desperately lacking. Overall, this movie just feels like an extended version of a "Law and Order" episode, due to its relentlessly dour and dark subject matter and cold, calculated plot line. Unfortunately, this is just a very predictable movie that does not offer a lot of surprises, and that is why it is completely missable.
A hilarious movie featuring Jeff Bridges in an iconic role as a lazy, unemployed stoner who gets himself mixed up in a dangerous situation. This movie has so many good actors and interesting characters, although I would've personally liked to see more of Tuturro's and Elliot's. Some of the characters are just flat out weird (like Julianne Moore's) and belong in another movie, because they don't really bring anything of importance to this one. Bridges and Goodman are a formidable team, and are reason alone to see this thing.
A nice slice of the revenge genre concerning an ex-hitman (Keanu Reeves), who shortly after losing his wife, is sent on a vengeful rampage after a couple of thugs break into his house, steal his car, and kill his new dog that was helping him cope with his wife's death. When given the right vehicle, Reeves is fun to watch, and this is that movie. The build-up is handled extremely well, and although the movie devolves a little at its conclusion, the action sequences and style this film possesses are enough for me to give it a recommendation. At the end of the day, this is a fun, if familiar-feeling, ride that should be seen by anyone who enjoys these types of movies.
