Welcome back to the site! Wait, “Welcome BACK?” you might be thinking? Well, if you’ve been reading my reviews for a while, then yes, chances are you’ve been here before. It just looks a lot different, and I’m not done with the changes yet.
With plenty of charm and genuine romantic spirit, a touch of magical realism, and a shining performance from Blake Lively, “The Age of Adaline” is as compelling a film love story as we’ve seen in theaters in a long time.
The latest Nicholas Sparks novel-turned-film is a terribly uneven effort. It has its moments of charm, but they’re far outnumbered by bland performances, shallow characterization, and worn-out clichés.
“Furious 7” works much the same crazy-insane, super fun car chase and fight scene magic as previous entries in the series, but also delivers in the emotional sense as the film pays tribute to the late Paul Walker.
