I have a soft spot for any movie that resolves all its major conflicts with dance offs. Sure the script is cliched but the cast is appealing and the dancing is pretty awesome - plus it's set in Las Vegas. No need for it to be in 3D but the theatrical lighting looks really cool in 3D.
Although it gets off to a slow start, this indie flick two hander - which takes place almost entirely inside a military trailer in the middle of the Nevada dessert - is ultimately well paced, tightly scripted and nicely acted. Timely and thought provoking - definitely worth taking a look (and currently streamable).
Despite cool special effects and a kick ass sound mix/design - nothing can help this weakly scripted disaster flick (there's a poor attempt at documentary style shooting - which they break way too many times) - plus there's some truly terrible acting to boot. Just awful!
Pleasant but mild fare from the Woodman, Set in 1928, a Brit pessimist (Colin Firth) is determined to expose an American psychic (Emma Stone) as a fraud but ends up falling for her. Not much magic but what it lacks is made up for by the exquisite cinematography and production design.
