This movie is better than you would expect. It’s a subtitled Norwegian film shot in the hand held camera/pseudo-documentary style and follows the only existing troll hunter in Norway through his routine of checks and balances on the troll population. The plot is realistic and the trolls are...
This powerful movie tells a story from the perspective of six-year-old Hushpuppy, who lives with her father “Wink” in their southern Louisiana Bayou community called “the Bathtub”. It follows Hushpuppy as life as she knows it in the Bayou starts to fall apart. The Bathtub is hit by a hurricane...
Return to Oz is a supposed sequel to Wizard of Oz, but Dorothy is much younger and the story follows more closely to the stories of L. Frank Baum. It’s full of creative characters and scenery, and weird enough for adults to still be captivated by it. I am a fan of fantastical movies, and...
Solstrom is a series made for TV by Cirque du Soleil. It’s unique because it includes international acts that you won’t find on touring shows, but also includes the regulars of the Cirque du Soleil performers. The series is broken up over five themed discs each led by solar characters that turn...
This movie is better than you’d expect. It seems like video game related movies are ill-received, but the story and the imagery are enchanting. The animation is done well, at times seems a little dated, but doesn’t take away from it being a good story and the important parts of the imagery...
Hansel and Gretel is a universal tale that has been retold in various versions. This movie uses the back story of the two unfortunate children as a springboard for their adventures in adulthood. The brother and sister are now witch hunters traveling across Europe. They arrive at a...
This film tells the incredible story of Ernest Shackleton's ill-fated voyage to Antarctica. When their ship, the Endurance, becomes locked in the ice, Shackleton and his crew begin their desperate attempt to survive the harsh, unforgiving landscape of Antarctica and find some way to escape...
This film combines Chinese sentimental drama, wire-fu, and some pretty crazy (if slightly corny) computer generated animation. Put together it’s a fun, unexpected film. Jet Li stars as a Buddhist monk/demon hunter on a mission to clear the land of evil. But what happens when one of his partners...
I had read author J. R. R. Tolkien's book "The Hobbit" and I watched this movie specifically to see if director Peter Jackson would stay true to the original work. I should not have worried though because Jackson does an excellent job of both tying into the aforementioned trilogy...
Lovers of wire-fu and Indiana Jones rejoice! Finally, someone has made a movie combining the two! The main character is even a fedora wearing professor! Great martial arts action without tons of blood or corpses littering the ground.
Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle team up to fight drug smugglers in another police corruption film set in Ireland. Everyone has a quirk and personal issues that impact the storyline including the philosophical hitman who really just wants nothing more than a good challenge....
Try to set aside everything you know about Roman Polanski's legal troubles and enjoy this first-rate thriller. Ewan McGregor is perfect as the innocent who accepts a "too good to be true" writing opportunity after the first ghost writer is found dead. Pay close...
Whether you like kung fu movies or not, this is a must see comedy/action flick. It's delightfully colorful and zany fun.
