The Light Between Oceans isn’t half bad as heart-tugging rom-dramas go and it is better written and acted compared to your typical Nicolas Sparks schlock, but at the same time, despite a talented cast and some great scenes, I didn’t find this nearly as emotional and I can’t see much replay value.

The Brothers Bloom is writer-director Rian Johnson’s follow-up his surprisingly fantastic 2005 film, Brick starring Joseph Gordon Levitt.

I went on opening day to see The Lovely Bones, hoping to see a film that was advertised as a mystery/thriller type of flick. Instead, what several others and myself witnessed was a giant mess of a film that was two-plus hours long that took forever to start, forever to end, and left us wondering what the heck was going on.
