10 Cloverfield Lane is an absolute thrill filled with enticing characters and a great story. If you enjoy a proper suspense thriller, I highly recommend giving 10 Cloverfield Lane a watch...or two.
From the director of The King’s Speech, Tom Hooper, comes The Danish Girl. Based on the novel by David Ebershoff, the plot centers around the marriage of Einar (Eddie Redmayne) and Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander) as Einar goes on a journey to discover his sexuality.
Quantum of Solace is the second installment in the rebooted 007 franchise starring Daniel Craig as the British spy, James Bond. The film follows the events of Casino Royale, after James Bond has successfully captured Mr. White, the man responsible for killing his former love interest.
From the studio that brought you movies like Toy Story, Monsters, Inc., and The Incredibles comes another great film, and one that I might add is not only enjoyable, but informative both for kids and adults.

Overall while Dracula Untold is an entertaining movie it does fall short in a few areas that cost the movie as a whole. If you’re a big fan of the character of Dracula in past media and literary interpretations then this may not be the movie for you.
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.
