The Voices

Released 02/06/2015                              Rated: R This is another movie whose trailer I first found on YouTube. I had forgotten about it, actually. I was in the library, going through their very small V section of movies (for my 2017 challenge) because … Continue reading

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Released 12/18/2015                           Rated: PG-13 This movie wasn’t even halfway through the first time we saw it in theaters, and I leaned over to my husband and went “This is amazing. We are totally reserving this at MovieStop.” (We don’t usually … Continue reading

The Good Dinosaur

Released 11/25/2015                              Rated: PG All the feels! Disney and Pixar have tugged at its audiences’ heartstrings once again with The Good Dinosaur. In my opinion, this is more of a movie for older children, and grownups who are fans of … Continue reading

The Scorch Trials

Released 09/18/2015                             Rated: PG-13 First of all, if you’ve read the book, this movie is nothing like it. I didn’t read the book until after I saw the film, and while the book counterpart contains more of a definite mystery, … Continue reading

American Ultra

Released 08/21/2015                              Rated: R This movie is amazing. I feel like the critics who gave the film a bad rating just weren’t the target audience. How did this movie not “live up to its potential”? It was great! The action … Continue reading
