Adapted from one of Jeff Kinney’s best-selling graphic novels, the movie Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules showcases both sibling rivalry and brotherly love and proves to be a humorous sequel to its 2010 predecessor.
The Lincoln Lawyer is certainly a far cry from Matthew McConaughey’s previous films, which, though pleasant enough, do not expand far beyond the “chick flick” boundaries. This particular film, however, demanded more from the handsome actor than a studly frame and a nice smile. Thrilling and gritty, The Lincoln Lawyer proves to be an attention-holder to moviegoers and a nice deviation for Matthew McConaughey.
Hollywood is following an old script: hide the crimes of Communism and pretend that Communists are ordinary people. MGB has remade the 1984 film Red Dawn, which described an invasion of the United States by Soviet forces allied with Cuban Communist troops and other allies.
When aliens invade Planet Earth, who else but the U.S. Marine Corps can save the day? That is the premise for this year’s action-packed film Battle: Los Angeles. Unrealistic? Of course. Predictable? Certainly. But entertaining? Without a doubt.
Matt Damon’s newest film, The Adjustment Bureau, questions the basis and validity of free will. Is man’s destiny truly in his own hands, or is his destiny in the hands of a higher power (God)? Is it one or the other — or both? The film also emphasizes the issues of sacrifice and liberty (but what is liberty — does it include trying to evade God’s plans for you?), marking it as yet another hit film to add to Damon’s lengthy roster.
