Rating: ««« out of 4 Stars

Running Time: 123 min.

It isn’t often that a movie reviewer will actually suggest paying a premium to check out a film. This week is an exception. The Walk takes the famous story of Philippe Petit’s 1974 high-wire walk between the World Trade Center skyscrapers and maximizes the visual...

Running Time: 111 minutes

Ever wondered how Peter Pan ended up in Neverland? I didn’t either, but a new film aspires to tell the story of the young boy who travels to a magical land and learns to fly. Pan is a marvel to look at, with imaginative adventure scenarios that feature stunning visuals. However, story wise, this is a hodge-podge of ideas that never quite gel. Kids may still enjoy the wild imagery, but most adults will likely be left scratching their heads.

Set during World War II, Peter (Levi Miller) is a boy living in a London orphanage under the stern rule of Mother Barnabas (Kathy Burke). One night, while the city is being shelled, she raises...

Burying the Ex - A young man must contend with a possessive and controlling ex-girlfriend who has risen from the grave in this indie comedy-horror flick from director Joe Dante (Gremlins).

Planning for the Future

PART THREE OF THREE

The story of Felicia (Guliford) and Eric Taylor is not yet complete, far from it. Now the future starts for both of them and for their children as well.

Decisions always have to be in the present or in the future. The past matters little except in knowing what you want, which in most come from experience.

In Felicia’s case, her experiences – good and bad – earned her some celebrity but also limited what she was able to do with her physical talents. The most serious diagnosis was osteopeonia of the spine, a precursor to osteoporosis, which put her dreams of a professional running career and even a shot at the Olympics completely on...

Running Time: 141 min.

We’ve all seen plenty of movies about astronauts encountering danger on other worlds, but The Martian is a bit different. Instead of aliens, it strands its lead on the red planet and forces him to endure the elements. Call it a sci-fi survivalist tale, if you like.

The story begins on Mars, where a NASA crew are conducting scientific experiments. When an unexpected sandstorm hits, the group is forced to evacuate. Unfortunately, botanist Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is hit and wounded by a flying antenna. Thinking him dead, the crew leaves. Watney soon wakes up to find himself alone on Mars with little oxygen or food and no means of...
