"The Great Gatsby"
Genre: Romantic Drama
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Isla Fisher, Joel Edgerton
Director: Baz Luhrmann
Comment: Outstanding performance by DiCaprio. Maguire and Mulligan were solid and well cast as well. The grandeur of the scenes and cinematography made it look like Gatsby directed it himself! A quality and compelling period piece.
Cast: Jason Bateman, Hope Davis, Frank Grillo, Michael Nyqvist, Paula Patton
Director: Henry Alex Rubin
Comment: A very dark but realistic depiction of our social media, cyber space addicted culture. It highlights the increasing velocity of cultural change and impact of this technology when used for destructive purposes. Despite the "R" rating teens and parents should see this and talk about it. Well done.
"Pain & Gain"
Genre: Action/ Adventure/Comedy
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Tony Shalhoub, Ed Harris, Rob Corddry
Director: Michael Bay
Comment: Based on a true story of the most ignorant and dumbest "bad guys" ever. Some comedy but again, painfully dumb!
Cast: Craig Robinson, Kerry Washington, David Alan Grier, S. Epatha Merkerson, Tyler James Williams
Director: Tina Gordon Chism
Comment: A very "see spot run" and ridiculous story line.
