Nightcrawler: A dark thriller that follows a desperate freelancer’s rise to success. Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) is ruthless, as he films his way through murder and mayhem.
American Sniper: I’m usually not one that enjoys military movies, but Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper) kept me engaged the entire time. During his four tours, he earns the nickname the “Legend”, for his lethal sniping skills and pinpoint accuracy. But when he returns home to his wife and kids, we discover a mentally damaged hero, struggling to find his way back to a normal life.
The Equalizer: The buildup of a man that lives a quiet life—reading books and working at Lowe’s—quickly takes a violent turn when the mafia gets involved. Robert McCall (Denzel Washington) doesn’t just kill. He kills with style and OCD precision.
John Wick: John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is pissed. They killed his dog, a present from his recently deceased wife. That dog represented his grip on humanity, and those who killed that dog, well, they have to pay.
Interstellar: Christopher Nolan did it again. From The Prestige to Inception, Nolan returns with the story of Coop (Matthew McConaughey), a pilot, who travels into space to save humanity from extinction. A gripping story, filled with tons of surprises, Interstellar—like most of Nolan’s movies—gets better the second and third time you watch it.
Big Hero 6: It’s been awhile since I left a movie theatre wishing the movie never ended. I took my brother and sister to see this movie, and I walked out that place more excited than them. From high-tech gadgets, to humor, to heartfelt moments that make you feel for the characters—including the marshmallow robot, Baymax— Big Hero 6 is one of the best, well-rounded films I’ve seen in years. Also, Feast was an amazing Disney short that played before the movie.
