Hercules serves as an example of the unimaginative risks studios are willing to make these days, spending $100 million hoping their movie will make it's money back and then some overseas thanks to 3D ticket prices and the face of The Rock.
Guardians of the Galaxy has an audience, that audience just isn't me. I was bored early and remained so throughout, at least whenever the focus was taken off the sentient tree and his talking raccoon buddy.
Lucy calls to mind any number of ideas addressed in other films, but in typical Luc Besson fashion, he puts action and entertainment first allowing for bigger ideas to coexist within a fun, mindless actioner.
Woody Allen's new film, Magic in the Moonlight, delivers a solid opening two-thirds with great performances from Colin Firth and Emma Stone, but falters in the end.
The Purge: Anarchy is, to put it bluntly, just stupid and the level of thought put into it is minimal at best.
Sex Tape, starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel, is a movie that's not entirely unfunny, but seeing it is entirely unnecessary.
Werner Herzog's Heart of Glass is an existential look at a Bavarian village in a state of despair is saying something, but I'm not sure what and I don't really care.
The Raid 2 is a dramatic step up from the first film as writer/director Gareth Evans shows he definitely has a mind for great action as well as a patience for story and an intriguing directorial style.
Land of Silence and Darkness is a film I have a very hard time looking at from a critical approach as I can certainly feel the power of the images Herzog presents, but I have a hard time coming to any real conclusion.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is well made, acted and yet again a technological marvel, but it's entirely inconsequential, predictable and nothing more than a footnote in this larger saga.
