CAPTAIN AMERICA CIVIL WAR | © 2016 Disney

I’m busy. You’re busy. We’re all busy. We work. We have hobbies. We have pets, spouses and/or kids. We have obligations and responsibilities. We have stuff to do. We can’t see all the movies we want to see. Who has time to see every movie? Movie critics. I mean, that’s their job, right? The rest of us have other, less cool jobs that don’t involve getting to see all the movies. But, we can make some time to watch a few movie trailers. They are short, and you get the gist of the movie. That’s good enough. You see what […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, Alan Rickman, Barkhad Abdi, Jeremy Northam, Iain Glen, Phoebe Fox, Aisha Takow Writer: Guy Hibbert Director: Gavin Hood Distributor: Bleecker Street Release Date: March 11, 2016 The term “thought-provoking” is thrown around so much that it’s almost meaningless – anything that attracts your notice should provoke some sort of thought – but EYE IN THE SKY brings the phrase back to its original intention. A drama about the whys and why-nots surrounding the possibility of a join U.K./U.S. drone strike on a “high-value” target in Kenya, the film presents so many possibilities and […]Read On »
