The Equalizer Review

October 3, 2014

I am very happy to say that “The Equalizer” is much more than an action movie with guns and
gangs. The writers proved to be very creative not only with weapon choices, but with the plot and
environment as well — like a fight to the death in a hardware superstore.
This is a pretty graphic movie, though not unnecessarily so. It’s not overflowing with gore, but I […]

Movie Review: “The Giver”

August 27, 2014

If I could describe the film “The Giver” in one word it would be this — Profound. As the main character Jonas experienced the world’s memories, I was floored by an overwhelming sense of awe. The happiness of a wedding, the horror of war and the warmth of love all enveloped me. Jonas, played by Brenton Thwaites, experiences all of these emotions in a matter of months and sees that life isn’t worth living if these emotions aren’t present.

Thwaites does an amazing job of conveying this large range of emotions. Whether it’s the joy and love he feels with Gabriel and Fiona, or the pain and sadness of realizing how broken his world is, ‘Jonas’ shows everything he feels. Not to mention he is devilishly handsome. […]
