I found Interstellar to be an absolutely fascinating film. The science in it was remarkable. Interstellar made me think a lot of Contact by Carl Sagan, it had a very similar temperment about the storyline.
If you thought the rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise was pretty incredible, you’re going to be blown away by the most recent offering. The opening scene of the film catches your attention, and the director never lets you go.
ClassBrain’s Point of View Review has an early look at the second film in the How to Train Your Dragon series.
For fans of Orson Scott Card, Ender’s Game is a must see, and for those who are not, it’s still a must see.
Join Harry, Hermione, Ron and the host of other amazing characters from Hogwarts, and celebrate the end of an amazing literary and film journey with the final installation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Thor is a great start to the summer of super heroes at the movies.
In 2010, the first half of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released. Directed by David Yates, who picked up the series after Goblet of Fire, the movie was a spectacular success.
Multiple Sarcasms is not a great film, nor is it a particularly interesting one. I would much rather see an interesting failure than a boring one.
No honest list of the best films of this decade would be complete without The Lord of the Rings. I don’t want to specify which of the three chapters is my personal favorite, because it is really one body of work. Upon the release of the first film, Peter Jackson became a household name and part of an elite club of filmmakers that are able to please mainstream audiences as well as critics. The name Peter Jackson can be grouped with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas as visionaries.
There are films that come along that change filmmaking. When I was younger, it was the original Star Wars films and 2001: A Space Odyssey. These films altered forever how we would look at film, space, science fiction, ourselves, and the world around us. Avatar takes us on a new exploration of those issues, once again raising the bar on our experiences.
Destruction in X-Men 3 is done on a massive scale, and characters are turned to ash in the blink of an eye. Old characters are vaporized and new characters disappear as fast as they appear, but the body count left me numb after awhile.
