The Loft (2014)



It’s kind of weird to see all these guys in the same movie :D besides that, it’s one of those movies with a double twist at the end and that’s probably the biggest downside, the first twist was nice and they could have ended the movie with that, but no, they had to add another twist.

American Sniper (2014)



Well, this is a movie about a patriotic Texan who died and a lot of people are going, so what else is new? Like Chris Kyle says in one of his interviews, it’s about the effect of war on his family and the people he served with, all the people who fought beside him but didn’t get a medal of honor.

Strange Magic (2015)



Strange magic is, Strange to say the least. It’s a musical with pop culture songs, which is kind of weird most of the songs don’t quite fit in. The story did get interesting in the middle but was ruined with a group song. The animation and visuals are amazing and are the only reasons to watch this movie. Honestly, it was painful to sit through, I mean, the movie had something to it but it wasn’t well developed. Their main concern seemed to be we should hit this song here, this song there, and that song here.

Cake (2014)



I’ll be honest I had second thoughts about going to this movie but I’m glad I went for it. Jennifer Aniston did a great job in this movie, definitely her best performance yet. Though the story isn’t anything new, it definitely is heartwarming. Here’s the story; Claire Bennett (Jennifer Aniston) is in a support group for her chronic pain.

Mortdecai (2015)



Not a lot of nice things to say about this movie. I love Johnny Depp no disrespect to him but his portrayal of Mortdecai reminded me of Rowan Atkinson, and I kept telling myself Rowan Atkinson would be perfect for this role. Anyways I thought that Depp did a good job but there was something off about the whole movie. For instance the plot itself is so convoluted and to top it off there’s a lot of characters, and a lot of the movie focused on Mortdecai rather than the plot.

Selma (2015)



This movie depicts the events that happened in the city of Selma, Alabama that ultimately secured equal voting right for black people. Even though Martin Luther King is at the center of the whole campaign, the movie shows us the incredible courage and hardship that the black community and their white supporters had to face to bring the dream of equality to reality. The movie shows how a community came together under the leadership of Martin Luther King to give black people the right to vote, a major event in the American Civil Rights Movement.

Paddington (2015)



Well,cheesy has a new name and yes, it’s Paddington. But if you can get past thecheesiness, it’s actually a nice film. The subtle British humor, beautifulanimation, great visuals, all adds up to make the movie quite enjoyable. Theonly downside to the whole thing was the bad guy, Millicent played by NicoleKidman, talk about cliché, I can understand the need for a bad guy but thisjust seemed forced.

The premise of the story is nothing new, retired black ops commando bla bla bla, comes out of retirement bla bla bla, you get the idea.

The Boxtrolls (2014)

Stop motion animation is probably one of the toughest and painstaking work you can do, sure the animation doesn’t look as smooth and clean as the 2D and 3D counterparts, it’s a wonderful artform in itself. Now, about the story, two people trying to find their place in the world, it was brilliant.
