The Little Prince (2015) – 5/5

Not only is the approach director Mark Osborne took in making The Little Prince incredibly clever, but he also managed to instigate the very same emotion as its print. There was not a perfect way to transfer this timeless story as it was written to the big screen, it might have been too abstract and confusing. […]

Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom (2015) – 5/5

Inspiring, nicely edited, and extremely informative, Winter on Fire takes the viewer dangerously close into the action of the Euromaidan protests that began in 2013 in Ukraine. Not only was it one of the best documentaries of 2015, but one filmed under extremely risky circumstances amidst a heartbreaking, but courageous fight. Director Evgeny Afneevsky provides […]

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) – 5/5

From beginning to end, Mad Max: Fury Road is a non-stop, thrilling action film that manages to balance the characterization, effects, and direction of this chaotic dystopia in the most beautiful manner. Two times was the charm for me to be convinced that Mad Max deserved every single piece of acclamation it was getting. Director […]

Joy (2015) – 4/5

It is always a pleasant surprise when you go into the movie theater expecting nothing, and come out with a joyful smile on your face. Joy was in every sense, an unexpectedly entertaining, almost outstanding film. The story itself, seemed unappealing at first, but with the help of an extremely good cast, that might not […]

Brooklyn (2015) – 3.5/5

It is difficult to create a brilliant love story; everything has been done already. Such is the case of Brooklyn. However, while Brooklyn’s story is overall, your typical cliche love story, it stands out due to its brilliant screenplay, inspiring costume and set design, and terrific acting. It is not often I enjoy a love […]

Amy (2015) – 3.5/5

While Amy is composed of substantial videos, interviews, and photos that revolve around the young singer and songwriter, it is a one-sided account. As it often happens with many documentaries, the director portrays Amy as only a victim of fame, while failing to admit that Amy Winehouse’s demise was a result of nothing more than […]

The 100-Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared (2015) – 4/5

As absurd as its title, The 100-Year Old Man is nothing more than a series of ludicrous events, each more unreasonable than the previous one… So it is quite a surprise that I found this movie extremely entertaining and enjoyable. Director Felix Herngren brings to life an original and unique story about a 100-year old man who […]
