You are probably wondering what on earth is a "Triple 9"...well, it is actually police code used to quickly inform people of a police officer's death. A dead cop is kind of a big deal and so, in theory, anyone who is anyone will be racing toward the crime scene. That is where our main characters come in. They are using this incident as a distraction in order to pull the greatest heist ever.
I remember the first film being very funny and looks to be on par with its predecessor, however, I am not sure if My Big Fat Greek Wedding is deserving of a sequel when it looks to retread familiar ground.

While this movie isn’t perfect it’s still one you can enjoy and take a simple life lesson from. Not every movie can be as complicated or mind blowing as Inception while still being fun and enjoyable. Time to time it’s nice to have a simple drama such as Paper Towns that allows you to walk away with a feel good vibe. Well I hope you can walk away with a feel good vibe and if not then at least you know now how the movie was. Give Paper Towns a chance and let it take you on a quick journey of what high school or your last year of high school may possibly be like. Let it give you the chance to see what is important to take away from life while you’re young and what you can let go of.
Overall, The Judge was a decent movie to watch despite the shortcomings the story had. I hope to see more acting outside of Marvel from Robert Downey Jr. and I still hope that he’ll be with Marvel for a while. It’s his acting that helped carry a good part of the movie when the story was stilted and because of that it’s worth watching. Go see The Judge and see what verdict you’ll give it once it’s over.
Winner of the 2015 Sundance Grand Jury Prize, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is a comedy-drama film based on the novel of the same name by Jessie Andrews.
Overall, I believe Jolie’s respect for the story was clearly evident in this well-intentioned film and it made for an assured viewing experience. Unbroken had all the elements of a great epic: incredible story, great actors, beautiful score, melancholic landscapes...but it still fell short and left much more to be desired.
