The Intern is that buddy movie where the buddies are a man and a woman. It’s also a paean to being contemporary without sacrificing the best what the past has given us – and about the idea that a woman can or at least should be able to have it all. It’s also about grey power.

Christopher Nolan what am I going to do with you?

Christopher Nolan’s new epic, Interstellar, is a magnificent achievement technically but falls a bit short in terms of story and character development. It’s an intriguing mix of science fact and fiction that attempts to turn a potential end of the world scenario with a phoenix-like rise from the ashes story. It spends a lot of time thinking and paying homage to Kubrick, but falls short with plot points that don’t add up and maybe one-and-a-half characters that are at all developed.
Matthew McConaughey shines as Cooper, an engineer turned farmer by necessity and Mackenzie Foy shines as his intelligent, earnest, determined young daughter, Murph. Otherwise, there are no characters we can really care about – which makes all the cool science stuff less relatable.

Tom Hooper doesn’t kid around. As a follow-up to his Oscar®-winning The King’s Speech, he could have played it safe and done another smart, funny period piece or a family drama – or any number of equally small independent films. Instead, he chose to adapt the hit musical Les Miserables to film – and, despite some pretty obvious flaws, did, indeed, create an uplifting Christmas release. In spite of those flaws, Les Miz is one of the best film-going experiences of the year.
