A film that will make space geeks squeal, “Geostorm” takes your breath away with astounding visual effects and soundtracks to compensate for its farfetched plot.
The latest X-Men film isn’t completely dreadful, but you may be tempted to cancel the Apocalypse after watching it.
“Brad’s Status” lets us into the mind of a 47-year-old man and his struggle with his midlife crisis, serving both as a rude awakening and mirror for those obsessed with social status.
Fans of Park Chan-Wook’s Vengeance film trilogy will be pleased that the auteur has not lost his touch. If you liked Gone Girl, you'll be thrilled to discover another film masterpiece that is just as sick and twisted as it is brilliant and complex.

The Tree of Life

If the Tree of Life teaches one thing, it's probably the infinite variety of subjectivity. It's a polarizing film to say the least. Some reviewers seem to love it, and can't stop gushing about its philosophical depth, while others find it hard to stop frothing at the mouth from its sheer pretentiousness. And me? Well. I'm ambivalent. 
  It's easy to assume the worst of And So It Goes. It looks like every other generic “comedy” that's been hastily slapped together to appeal to a more mature audience – the kind of film in which, these days, respected veterans of the silver screen appear in order to...
A masterfully constructed nail-biter, '10 Cloverfield Lane' is a self-contained mystery thriller that is engagingly performed and thoroughly engrossing.
Wes Anderson has a reputation for slightly surrealistic touches in his directorial style. Moonrise Kingdom, the director's most eccentric film to date, will give fans and detractors alike cause to rejoice: the former because of the full-blown Andersonian flourishes that suffuse the work, the latter because they'll be able to flame it as cloyingly precious.
While it contains enough fisticuffs to satisfy action junkies, 'SPL 2' is burdened with an unexpectedly convoluted, labyrinthine story.
Only last year, George Lucas has gone on record as saying that he'll never make another Star Wars movie again, so we're not sure if Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (3D) was created to make a quick buck, to infuriate his critics or to showcase his ability to worm his way around technicalities, since he didn't actually make a new movie.

Larry Crowne

Synopsis: Until he was downsized, affable, amiable Larry Crowne (Hanks) was a superstar team leader at the big-box company where he's worked since his time in the Navy. Underwater on his mortgage and unclear on what to do with his suddenly free days, Larry heads to his local college to start over. There he becomes part of a colorful community of outcasts, also-rans and the overlooked all trying to find a better future for themselves...often moving around town in a herd of scooters. In his public-speaking class, Larry develops an unexpected crush on his teacher Mercedes Tainot (Roberts), who has lost as much passion for teaching as she has for her husband. The simple guy who has every reason to think his life has stalled will come to learn an unexpected lesson: when you think everything worth having has passed you by, you just might discover your reason to live.

Larry Crowne is a light-hearted feel-good comedy that is low-key and relatable without disappearing under the radar. Co-writer-director-star Tom Hanks ably carries the film on his everyman shoulders, making the titular character extremely likable and real enough. Julia Roberts shines as the indifferent, alcoholic professor who teaches Larry at the community college. This is not one of her typical 'America`s sweetheart' roles; she is able to deliver bite when she has to, and shares charming chemistry with Hanks that builds up slowly.
