Chuck is a run-of-the-mill boxing drama that features some solid performances headlined by Liev Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss and Jim Gaffigan, though in Schreiber’s case, it’s amazing the work he was able to do with the amount of make-up caked on his face…

The Sea of Trees is a movie more about regret than loss or grief and while the screenplay could’ve used some work, the film itself is worthwhile if only to watch an excellent performance from Matthew McConaughey and to some extent, Naomi Watts even if her character is clichéd.

Birdman might not quite be the home-run of a film some make it out to be, but no doubt Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s character-driven opus, with commentary on modern-day blockbusters, is anything if not original and features a fantastic performance by Michael Keaton who was deserving of the Best Actor award.

Tank Girl is a visually interesting flick with a story that doesn’t hold, ahem, water. The performances from Tori Petty and Malcolm McDowell are both fun but everything else is a mess including editing which gets pretty annoying after some time.
