Avengers A-- "Avengers: Age of Ultron" is a great mix of dark and fun at the same time, but does this film deliver after the whole Phase 2 build up? Does it surpass the original and live up to all our expectations? Sadly, we... (more »)

“Speed”, a Jan De Bont’s action-thriller movie, brings you to a heart-racing journey that seems endless. With no signs of cessation, you might find yourself holding your breath.   The film is about a Los Angeles Police Department cop,... (more »)

The film is shot in an intense black and white, which amplifies rather than detracts from the tragic storyline of A Streetcar Named Desire, Elia Kazan’s film-make of Tennessee William’s heated drama. The characters – now... (more »)

Will the slipper fit? A beautiful maiden, a dreamy ball, Prince Charming, and the shoe of a lifetime. We all know the classic of the Frenchman Charles Perrault (then “Cendrillon”), but Disney seems to outdo itself in the latest rendition of... (more »)
Into the Woods This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

Before I watched Into the Woods I went online to get a basic plot summary because I do not like surprises and the commercials gave nothing away concerning what it was about. What I found did not extinguish my fear of watching the movie, in fact... (more »)

Based on the inspiring true story of surfing champion Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm to a shark attack when she was thirteen years old, “Soul Surfer” is strong faith-filled movie for the whole family. If you are looking for an... (more »)
Birdman This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Thank the film gods for “Birdman”! It is a beautifully artistic film, and those appear in cinemas only every so often. This is an epic story of the inward and outward effects of the ego on main character Riggan Thomson (Michael... (more »)
Man of Steel This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I wanted to love director Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel,” I really did. The man understands action, he knows how to frame a scene, and he can tell a story. The problems that generally plague his work are weak casting and a... (more »)

Capote This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

It all started with The Hunger Games. Not what you were expecting, huh? Well it’s true, in a sorta roundabout way. See, when I first saw Phillip Seymour Hoffman in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire I thought he was a pretty good actor and a good... (more »)
12 Angry Men (1957) This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

Just seen it and boy was I amazed. Never have I been so intrigued with a movie with just dialogue for the most part. It proves that you don't need big budget CGI visuals or A-List actors or even breathtaking action sequences to deliver an... (more »)
Memento
When Greek playwrights and philosophers defined the first tragic characters in Oedipus and Antigone, they created an archetype that would inspire writers long after their time. The idea that the powerful wish of a noble hero faces inevitable... (more »)

When asked by The New Yorker what the title The Hurt Locker means screenwriter, Mark Boal, explained, "If a bomb goes off, you're going to be in the hurt locker. That's how they used it in Baghdad. It means slightly different things to different... (more »)
