One Popcorn: Flop
Two Popcorns: Wait till it’s on video
Three Popcorns: Go see it
Four Popcorns: Standing ovation
Genre: Action/Adventure, Suspense/ThrillerCast: Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Caviezel, Vincent D'Onofrio, Vinnie Jones
Director: Mikael Hafstrom
Comment: Even two Hollywood icons like Stallone and Schwarzenegger can't cover for a implausible story line and weak script.
Cast: Chloe Grace Moretz, Julianne Moore, Gabriella Wilde, Portia Doubleday, Ansel Elgort
Director: Kimberly Peirce
Comment: Kind of a fun flick as we near Halloween. Manageable horror for the weak stomach crowd and a very timely story about high school bully issues. Retribution can be hell, so don't mess with Carrie!
'The Fifth Estate'
Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Daniel Bruhl, Laura Linney, Anthony Mackie, David Thewlis
Director: Bill Condon
Comment: An interesting "Docudrama" illustrating how WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, the government and the Guardian British paper handled the most critical security leaks in U.S. history. The term "Fifth Column" refers to the new technological information age eclipsing the traditional "Fourth Column" traditional media. A good movie for politically and First Amendment Rights issues interested people.
