Top 10 Films of 2014 for Grownups from AARP Magazine
There is no magic in theater during Magic in the Moonlight, the latest offering from Woody Allen. Although I’m a huge Colin Firth fan, as well as a fan of Emma Stone, both of them should have skipped this project. It was forgettable and anything but magical.
Lucy is an action packed movie about a drug deal gone bad. The drug deal wasn’t the only thing headed that direction.
Is a man worth more than his words, a woman worth more than her pictures?
Words and Pictures is a romantic comedy with a bittersweet edge.
Muppets Most Wanted starts up exactly where the last one left off and in usual Muppet fashion, opens with a big, fun opening musical number about being a sequel which is guaranteed to have you laughing right from the start.
If a madman whispered something to you that let you know that he knew where your child was, but no one else heard it, and he was let loose; what would you do?
Oblivion is full of eye candy: the landscapes, the space pool, and of course Cruise. However, eye candy does not a movie make, which is something Cruise has forgotten along the way somewhere.
Gerard Butler is a wonderful hero taking on an entire cadre of bad guys in Olympus Has Fallen.
The Silver Linings Playbook is a painfully, funny film full of all too human characters. If you relate to a family that is quite a few degrees off-center, then you will probably love this movie.
The Hedgehog (Le hérisson) is a quiet film, where things don’t always work out as we would like. Life has its own agenda. It reminds us of how important it is to pay attention to those around us, and to value the quiet moments.
There is nothing high about Your Highness, except perhaps the drug level of the writers when they created the script. Your Highness is the low point of the Spring movie season for me. See anything else, you’ll be happier.
Jake Gyllenhaal stars in Source Code as Captain Colter Stevens with Michelle Monaghan as Christina Warren (the girl he wants to save) and Vera Farmigad as Goodwin, his liaison during the mission. If you were to cross the TV series Seven Days with the film Groundhog Day, you have an approximation of the upcoming film, with a twist here and there.
No Strings Attached is a decidedly adult comedy, turning the tables on the idea that men are the only ones who want to have no strings attached sex.
The Kids Are All Right is an interesting story that deals with ordinary life in a not so ordinary household. When you are raising two teenagers in a lesbian home, eventually there are questions.
