The Monuments Men: Movie Review

by Mary Anne Barker

The Monuments Men starts with Frank Stokes (George Clooney) making a presentation to President Franklin D Roosevelt. A plea to save the art, pictures, sculptures, historic buildings. Near the end of World War II curators, directors and artists were concerned about the art that the Nazi’s had stolen and historic places being destroyed. There is an ongoing debate, one side saying art is not worth dying for and the other saying that this art should be saved.

The Bourne Legacy: Movie Review

by Jesus Ibarra

The Bourne Legacy is the fourth entry into the Bourne film series starring Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz and aiming to continue the series without the titular Jason Bourne played by Matt Damon in the last three movies. I didn’t envy the makers of this film because they had to come up with a story that was compelling enough to tell without Matt Damon in the lead role, after a successful trilogy. That said, you didn’t have to watch the first three movies in the series because the first half of this movie, basically gives you the gist of what happened.
