The acclaimed book, Paper Towns, by author John Green (The Fault in Our Stars) is coming to the big screen Friday, July 24. But first, Green and stars of the film stopped by Dallas for an exclusive fan event and sneak peek at the movie.
I was pleasantly surprised that the storyline and plot direction balanced really well with the action and stunts. Most times actors and directors tend to lean on one aspect or the other, but with “Rogue Nation” I think director Brad Bird brought out the best of what makes the franchise great.
Directed by the legendary Judd Apatow, “Trainwreck” definitely holds its own against his classics “40-Year-Old Virgin” and “Knocked Up.”
It’s more than possible to dip your toes back into a stagnant or failed franchise and deliver something ranging from quite good to spectacular but Genisys does not land in that spectrum.
After stumbling with clunking films about automobiles and monsters in college that seemed to lack traces of a human spirit, Pixar proves it is still capable of gathering its wits and knock out a masterfully told film with “Inside Out”.
Jurassic World is honestly better than it has any right to be.
At its core, “Tomorrowland” shines brightly on the fuel of optimism. The characters are dreamers with ambitions. They are problem solvers that rise up when confronted with a puzzle instead of shying away from it.
This is not as much a review of “Fury Road” as it is me forcing myself to not rip my keyboard in half after writing 20 pages on how much I love this movie and want the world to know.
If viewed on its own without having seen any Liam Neeson movie in the past seven years, “Run All Night” would have the potential to introduce us to Neeson’s ability to play the tough and gruff action hero with a strong dash of introspection. And that introduction alone, along with seeing the 63-year-old ex-boxer show how to kick people to the ground with a sense of class is generally enough to create intrigue.
