Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan returns to the captivating grip of The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs with Split, an original thriller that delves into the mysterious recesses of one man’s fractured, gifted mind.  Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others.  Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy, The Witch), Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him—as well as everyone around him—as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.

Live By Night Passes

Directed by and starring Ben Affleck, Live By Night is an action thriller set in the Prohibition Era and centered around a group of individuals in the world of organized crime.  What you put out into this world will always come back to you, but it never comes back how you predict. Taking fatherly advice is not in Joe Coughlin’s nature. Instead, the WWI vet is a self-proclaimed anti-establishment outlaw, despite being the son of the Boston Police Deputy Superintendent. Joe’s not all bad, though; in fact, he’s not really bad enough for the life he’s chosen.

A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in this reimagining of Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the
blood-soaked battlefield in order to conquer the undead once and for all.

Now You See Me (5.24.13)

Now-You-See-Me-Teaser-Poster

Now You See Me was surprisingly refreshing and filled with suspense, action, and occasional laughter. The movie follows four lonely illusionists as they live out a dead magician’s son’s vendetta.

FBI agent Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) joins forces with Interpol Detective Alma Vargas (Mélanie Laurent) to prove that a team of Las Vegas magicians, the Four Horsemen, were responsible for robbing a Paris bank and rewarding their audience with the $3 million. The Four Horsemen consists of as J. Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), The Know-It-All, who amazed New York City crowds with his elaborate card tricks, Isla Fisher as Henley Reeves (Isla Fisher), The Beauty, who captivated her audience with tricks and good looks, Jack Wilder (Dave Franco), The Rookie, who seems like he was greater at breaking and entering rather than simple magic tricks, and finally, Merritt Osbourne (Woody Harrelson), The Mentalist, who before joining the group was conning married couples out of their vacation money.

White Men Can’t Jump
Woody Harrelson, who is most known in the Black community as the b-baller from the 1992 classic White Men Can’t Jump, was absolutely charismatic and loveable in Now You See Me. He’s clearly aged but he’s aged well. In the movie, Harrelson played the brazen, arrogant psychic, knowing your every thought and desire. But, like most spiritualists and predictors, he was just very good at guessing and sensing the obvious.

Harrelson definitely get puts on the “You’re So Ugly, You’re Kinda Cute” List!

Another pleasant, handsome surprise was rapper and actor Common, who played FBI Supervisor Evans. Common only popped up in a few scenes but it was definitely worth it! He’s so posed and regal that it’s hard not to notice him. I still haven’t come to a solid conclusion whether his talents are more superior as an actor or a rapper. But, if Nelly, Ludacris, and TI can do, I say more power to Mr. Common!

My favorite AARP card holder, Morgan Freeman (197 years old), graced us with this presence. Mr. Freeman has yet to let me down in his cinematic roles. In Now You See Me, he’s a key player. His character, Thaddeus Bradley, exposes the tricks to everyone’s act. Money quickly becomes his motivator as he shifts gears mid-way through the movie. Of course, this isn’t a spoiler review so please check out Now You See Me, which “magically” hits theatres on May 31st!

3.75 STARS: Besides the ending, which happened to be a little cliché, the movie was great!
