‘The Hummingbird Project’ is an interesting enough, if predictable, rumination on the current state of the American dream.


There are a few scenes that are over-the-top and dramatic for the sake of being dramatic, but ultimately, the film delivers with its message that labels are only as important as we want them to be. In the end, we all die and the impact we have on someone’s life will change through their grieving process. See this film then ask yourself what your legacy will be with family and friends.

One good thing about Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice? I’m pretty sure a hell of a drinking game can be made around it. Every time Batman crashes into something: take a drink. Every time Lex Luthor monologues about God: take a drink. Every time Lois Lane gets trapped or captured: take a drink.

If you can head this advice, then you might really enjoy Now You See Me.


The overall result of ‘To Rome with Love’ is a funny film whose contrivances make no excuses for themselves, and whose jokes have a substance that a viewer could ponder for sometime after leaving the theatre.

Nick (Jesse Eisenberg), a mild mannered and lead-footed pizza delivery guy, has lost his way. While his friend Chet (Aziz Ansari) has finally landed full time employment as a Jr. High teacher, and Kate (Dilshad Vadsaria), the girl he’s in love with and Chet’s sister, just got an opportunity that will take her to Atlanta, […]
