Stronger: Jake Gyllenhaal is Oscar Worthy in This Inspiring Biopic (Review)

Didn’t we already have a movie about the Boston Bombing? Patriots Day came out in 2016 and it told the story of how the police tracked down the bombers following the devastating event. Patriots Day was undeniably great. Stronger is a completely different movie; It doesn’t focus on the bombing itself, instead on Jeff Bauman, one of the survivors from the explosion near the finish line who later became a symbol of hope for Boston.

Life: A Familiar, Yet Thrilling Space Movie With A Great Cast [Review]

Ever since Ridley Scott blessed us all with Alien in 1979, the space horror genre has been one of the more entertaining genres out there. Life borrows several  ideas and themes from Alien, but that doesn’t make it a bad movie. As a matter of fact, it’s a very entertaining and thrilling movie that is comprised of a great cast.
