Jack’s Mannequin means a lot of different things to its fans. For some, Jack’s Mannequin means simply good piano music. For others, it’s love. And for more, it’s hope. For me, it means a bit of all those things and still more. With all those feelings tied up in Jack’s Mannequin, it’s no wonder the 10 Years in Transit tour sold out almost instantly, and luckily I managed to snag a ticket.

When the Coen Brothers commit to a project, you know they are all in in every angle of its execution, and that masterful craftsmanship is presented front and center in ‘Hail, Caesar!’
Although it didn’t quite personally live up to “Baby Mama”, “Sisters” definitely held its own against the influx of duo comedies coming out these days.
A Seth Rogen-style movie combined with a holiday theme is like a Christmas miracle to me. And I was definitely not disappointed with this year’s token adult holiday movie “The Night Before”.
‘The Martian’ is perfect. I dislike using that phrase as I feel it’s a catch all or superfluous description, but occasionally a movie comes along that deserves it.
Based on the unbelievable true story, “Black Mass” tells the story of Whitey Bulger (Johnny Depp) from his start as a small time crime boss to a cross-country criminal.
The filmmakers do deserve a ton of credit for “American Ultra”; for a year that will end with at least seven secret agent movies before the year is over, they found an approach that carves its own niche to stand out from the crowd.
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.
