“The Woman in Black 2”

The Woman in Black 2 takes place 40 years after the original film, introducing a new group of people to the abandoned Eel Marsh House. This horror film pits a group of orphaned children who were forced to move into the abandoned home with their caretaker. Here, they encounter an increasingly terrifying display of horror. Although universally panned by critics, The Woman in Black 2 offers a fair share of fright for anybody seeking your average, run-of-the-mill paranormal horror story. Riddled with suspense, the film provides a pleasant experience for anybody.

“Taken 3”

Liam Neeson returns as ex-special agent Bryan Mills, as he is framed for the murder of his ex-wife and now pursued by those he never thought would chase him, the United States. As he goes on the run to escape the relentless pursuit of the police, FBI and CIA, Mills must employ his “particular set of skills” to figure out who is the real murderer of his ex-wife and exact justice, protecting all he has left, his daughter. A thrilling end to the franchise, this film is an action-packed thrill ride that although formulaic at times, does not fail to entertain. I recommend anyone who is an avid fan of action movies to catch this while it’s still out.

 

“American Sniper”

Clint Eastwood’s directorial career continues with “American Sniper,” starring Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. Based on a true story, this film captures the man behind the rifle; a Navy SEAL sniper on a mission to protect his brothers-in-arms. Having served four years duty in Iraq, Chris Kyle comes to realize that his actions and the war can not be easily forgotten once home. A captivating, gritty film that tackles the psychologically difficult burden of going to war and taking a man’s life. A harrowing ending that perfectly poses a compelling argument about war and death, this will go down as one of Clint Eastwood’s best films in his career. A tribute to an American hero, this film is sure to elicit a strong emotional response from its viewers.

 

“Selma”
Selma chronicles the incredible movement led by Martin Luther King Jr. that forever changed history. Martin Luther King Jr. led this dangerous campaign to fight for equal voting rights for African Americans in a society that still perceived them as lesser humans, concluding with President Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965. An incredible performance by the entire cast, and perfectly timed moment in our history where the treatment of African Americans has been forced into conversation, this film captures the brave and epic movement that was a turning point for African American rights in the United States. A powerful, passionate and very important film, I suggest everyone to watch this movie and allow to be moved by its unapologetic message and reflect on how far we have evolved in society.
