‘Silver Linings Playbook’ finds structure in mental script
Only in Hollywood magic land can the stressful and never hilarious situation of dealing with violently mentally ill family members be turned into one of the most beloved comedy creations ever.
‘Iron Man 3’ proves nothing is sacred with fresh twists
In a time when God-like status is granted to those who can obtain the franchise tag for a film series, the true test of creative power is not falling flat when that third or later chapter is born.

For all the hype and worship expressed over the past several years for a certain glittery nightmarish treatment of vampires, it doesn’t make much sense that the same audience wouldn’t break down theater doors to see an example of the same author’s next work, especially with actual talent from the lead actress.

Cue my childhood: A mix of early morning animated adventures and 80s/90s action films, followed by their recreation in the dirt battlefields along the backyard fence.
‘The Croods’ an entertaining laugh from the past
Modern man’s cultural understanding of ancestral connections like its cave dwelling past is in many ways much more respectful than even a couple of decades ago.
‘Seven Psycopaths’ finds balance in quirky comedy
