Our Spotlight

Captain Phillips (2013)

“If you ever wanted to experience what it would be like to be held hostage by a band of desperate and dangerous high-seas buccaneers as they brandish automatic weapons with careless abandon, then “Captain Phillips” is probably as close as you will ever get, or want to get.” Roger Ebert

The World's End (2013)

“You might not expect a slapstick comedy about middle-aged pubcrawlers brawling with superhuman extraterrestrial invaders to have brains, heart and wisdom, but that's “The World's End,” a rare film that's as much fun as you've heard.” Roger Ebert

The Bling Ring (2013)

“Inspired by actual events, a group of fame-obsessed teenagers use the internet to track celebrities' whereabouts in order to rob their homes.” (IMDB)
