Non-Stop adrenaline rush in theatres

If you like some adrenaline with your popcorn at the movies, you may want to check out Non-Stop as my movie pick this week. Check out other short reviews below!
 
 
Non-Stop
 
Liam Neeson is probably used to being in stressful situations by now, but this intense airplane thriller was full of unexpected twists and turns. Even with a few loose ends I would have liked to have resolved, it didn't take away from the clever, suspenseful and action-packed plot. Not the best movie choice if you're going to be going on a flight soon, but it's a promising edge-of-your-seat "whodunit" that will have you guessing the entire time.
 
My Rating: 30/34
 
Reminded me of: Flightplan, Clue, Red Eye, and Taken.

 

Pompeii

Pompeii told the story of a city that did not have any form of a Safety Evacuation Plan. And if you think that imminent and certain death would stop Hollywood from creating a love story, you'd be wrong. It had a decent story, great 3D effects and gladiator fighting scenes, but the second half of the movie had me rolling my eyes a few times.

My Rating: 25/34

Reminded me of: Dante's Peak, Gladiator, Troy, and 300.

 

Philomena

I believe movies that are based on true stories have so much more depth and beauty to them. Philomena was told so fantastically, there’s certainly no surprise that it received Golden Globe nominations for Best Picture and Best Actress after Judy Dench’s spot-on performance. It’s a beautiful drama, complete with both sarcastic and compassionate moments that takes you right into the heart of a mother's search for her son.

My Rating: 29/34

Reminded me of: The King's Speech and The Queen.

 

See you at the movies!
