Review: Oscar Live Shorts

Rarely do we get an opportunity to see the films nominated for Oscars as live action shorts. Presented here are 2014’s nominees, two of which are extraordinary, one, very clever and one, funny.

Film Review: The Invisible Woman

Charles Dickens apparently had a personal life as interesting as the tales told in his incredible novels. Who knew? Now, the story of his extra-marital relationship is told on the big screen.

Film Review: Jack Ryan – Shadow Recruit

Jack Ryan is back on the big screen, this time in the person of Chris Pine, fightin’ Commies wherever they may be.

Film Review: Hunger Games: Catching Fire
