Cate Blanchett

by Lorie Lewis Ham



I admit to being a bit lost at the beginning of the movie because it had been far too long since I had seen the last one, The Desolation of Smaug, but once my memory was jogged and I kind of sorted out again who everyone was (well I knew Bilbo and Gandalf), The Battle of the Five Armies was an action filled, sword clanging adventure.

Hanna: Movie Review

by Jesus Ibarra



Hanna, starring Saoirse Ronan, is a revenge film that surprisingly has many layers to it, mostly because of the superb acting from Saoirse as Hanna and the object of her revenge, Cate Blanchet’s CIA Agent Marissa Wiegler. The film also benefits from an awesome electronic score that sets the mood for the action when it ramps up, or when the film slows down its pace. The directing also gives the film a unique atmosphere that just draws you in sometimes, making the film fast paced when it needs to be and slows it down when it has to.
