Review: 'A Picture of You'

Submitted by Indiebizliz on June 27, 2014 - 3:33pm


What do you do with a loved one’s things once they’ve passed? Sift through all the objects accumulated throughout a lifetime? Do you donate them, sell them, or throw them away? The sum total of these items can tell you a story about a person or maybe even a story about yourself.

In the new film, A Picture of You, two siblings travel from their very separate lives in New York City to clean out their childhood home in rural Pennsylvania. Estranged from each other, Jen and Kyle come to terms with their grief through packing up their mother’s things. She has written in the margins of her books, she has kept old bills, and even has a few hidden secrets stored on the hard drive of her computer. Through flashbacks and a little cyber sleuthing, Kyle and Jen learn more about themselves and what life was really like for their mom in her last few months.

Review: 'Transformers: Age of Extinction'

Michael Bay needs to stop making films. PERIOD. His movies are so over the top with zero substance, but as cinema summer blockbusters go, the guy sure knows how to blow stuff up. And that's what most audiences want from a Michael Bay film, don't talk too much, blow stuff up and stick some pretty people in front of the camera. Well Michael, you achieved these three ingredients in your newest film Transformers: Age of Extinction....but nothing more. Four years have passed since the battle of Chicago, the Autobots and Decepticons who did not perish in the fight are being hunted down as enemies of the state by the federal government. An elite CIA black ops team under the command of Henry Attinger (Kelsey Grammer) was created for this very thing, to kill Transformers and take back their planet. The ace in the hole for these humans is a Transformer bounty hunter named Lockdown, who is hellbent on one prize, Optimus Prime. Only one problem, Prime has gone missing so the hunt begins.

With a recent run of movies based on a dystopian future, it is important for a film to find a way to stand out from the pack; Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer does just that. Based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob & Benjamin Legrand and Jean-Marc Rochette, Joon-ho creates a thought provoking science fiction film that explores humanity's struggle to survive while living through social stratification in the last remaining colony on earth...a train called the Snowpiercer.

In the near future, the earth is dying due to the effects of global warming. In hopes to lower the earth's temperature, a collective decision by the world's governments is made to release a substance called CW7 into the atmosphere. The substance backfires and sends humanity into the second ice age killing every living thing on the planet. The last remaining survivors are forced to board a massive train called the Snowpiercer, the brainchild of a mysterious man called Wilford. The train, powered by an engine designed to last forever, travels the earth on a globe spanning track which circumnavigates the planet exactly once per year. The train's cabins are divided by class where the richest members of society ride in the front of the train with all the luxuries of life, while the lower class rides in the tail of the train, given little and struggle to survive. This is the 18th year of the Snowpiercer's journey.

Review: 'They Came Together' With Lots of Laughs

Rom coms in general are incredibly formulaic. Boy meets girl, boy gets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back. Blah, blah, blah, kiss, end credits. Love it or leave it or roll your eyes. David Wain is counting on it all.

In They Came Together, Joel and Molly meet on a blind date and loathe each other, but then they sort of like each other, and so on and so forth. Every ridiculous cliche you can think of is thrown together with incredibly deliberate, brash humor. With a comic team of actors led by Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd, this movie is a complete farce of the genre we’ve come to know and love and hate so much. The jokes are rapid fire and the rip off homages to films we all know well are unapologetic in the best way possible.
