Four Popcorns

Comment: Two words: powerful and real. A story of hope based on a true story of a young single mother snatching victory out of the jaws of defeat. The critics panned it but every family with teenage kids should see this. Vanessa Hudgens is an outstanding young actress.

"I, Frankenstein 3D"
Two Popcorns

Genres: 3-D, Sci-Fi, Action/Adventure
Cast: Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Miranda Otto

Three Popcorns

Genres: Drama, Romance
Cast: Ralph Fiennes, Felicity Jones, Kristin Scott Thomas, Tom Hollander

Four Popcorns

Genres: Documentary
Cast: Mitt Romney, Romney Family
Director: Greg Whiteley

Comment: An extraordinarily human and candid look behind the scenes of the Mitt Romney's 2008 and 2012 election campaigns. The focus is the impact on the Governor and his family as they went through the demanding process. Well directed and edited.
