Going In Style – Grey Power!

Going in Style is the rare remake that is better than the original.

That’s because it creates a plausible (if not entirely believable) set of circumstances in which three octogenarians are forced to consider the unlikely remedy of robbing a bank – and are smart enough to do it.

Spectacularly Fun Trailer: Kingsmen: The Secret Service

Badass Colin Firth

The month of February has gotten a bad rap. For almost forever, it has been the month where studios sent the movies they’d lost faith in to die. But a curious thing began to happen back when Daredevil was released in February – it became a modest hit.

So studios began treating February with a little respect and now, you get The LEGO Movie being a huge hit from a February release – and 50 Shades of Grey getting a Valentine’s release.

So, why not a all-out spy thriller? Like, say, Matthew Vaughn’s (X-Men First Class, Kick-Ass) epic looking Kingsmen: The Secret Service – starring Colin Firth, Michael Caine and Samuel L. Jackson? The new trailer certainly looks entertaining. Check it out after the jump. Kingsmen: The Secret Service opens on February 13, 2015. Enjoy!

Interstellar Is Stellar Not Interstellar!

INTERSTELLAR

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.
