FEATURESSick of the same old same old “Top films of 2014” lists? Check out Jacob’s Top Fifteen Favorite First Time Viewings of the year for a look back at some newly discovered classics.
The Action/Adventure section is back with a punch to the face courtesy of American Ninja 2: The Confrontation.
COLUMNSThe Two-Cents team tackles award winning documentary 5 Broken Cameras.
Sharon meanwhile brings us a new Pick of the Week in Bend it Like Beckham. And yes, it is indeed football NOT Soccer.
THEATRICAL RELEASESExpanding to general release this week is the newest from Paul Thomas Anderson, Inherent Vice. Read our review although I hear that there is a scene involving a banana that makes this a must see.
Also on release, Selma, read our review on this look back at Martin Luther King, Jr. and the struggles of the African-American community in the Civil Rights Movement.
Finally, for a smaller scale feature but one that is big on ideas and performances try Predestination. A smart effort from the Spierig Brothers worth watching if only for the performance of Sarah Snook.
HOME VIDEO RELEASESA host of releases this week including the adaptation of Joe Hill’s novel Horns starring Daniel Radcliffe. We also have a number of Twilight Time releases including Yentl, Funny Lady, Inherit the Wind, and Bunny Lake is Missing, plus reviews of revenge thriller 88 and Charlton Heston noir Dark City (not the one with the folding city craziness).
