A digital Depp is interesting to watch but some connection is lost in ‘Transcendence’
“Oculus” opens in theaters this week and anybody who loves a scary time will get what they ask for. As someone who isn’t a big fan of horror films, I can assure you this one has what it takes to succeed as disturbingly well-made entertainment.
“Oculus” is a brilliant and eerie nightmare.
With its strong cast, great action sequences and suspenseful atmosphere, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” triumphs as commendable blockbuster entertainment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Even with Schwarzenegger leading the charge, “Sabotage” bites the dust.
“Divergent” tries to come into its own but fails in its strive for individuality, all because it can’t recognize the absence of color and depth within its uninteresting personality.
“300: Rise of an Empire” revels in its ancestor’s distinctive blood-soaked glory, and therefore wins over fans thirsting to see Greece and Persia do battle again.
“Non-Stop” is a passable airplane thriller, designed to entertain while up in the air and to be forgotten once disembarking.
