As we make our way through the 21st Century, technology continues to advance in fastest ways in the history of Earth. With the upcoming movie Ex-Machina starring Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson and Alicia Vikander, we have to question if that is actually a good thing. April 10, 2015 is when we find out the answer to the question "What happens to me if I fail your test?" Check out the synopsis and trailer for the movie below:
I must admit, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has become one of those actors that I'll pretty much watch in anything. He's charismatic, thoroughly invested in his roles and just seems like a person I would love to hang out with. So to hear that he's doing a movie with Oliver Stone at the helm...that's just a must-see right there. Here's our first look at Snowden, due out December 25, 2015. Check out the synopsis below:

The new year is start off on a high note, movie wise. Let's talk about the movie Selma, shall we? Here are all the vital statistics:
Director: Ava DuVernay
Starring: David Oyelowo, Oprah Winfrey, Carmen Ejogo, Tim Roth, Common
Synopsis: In spring of 1965, a series of dramatic events changed the course of America and the modern concept of civil rights forever -- as courageous marchers, led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., attempted three times to carry out a peaceful procession from Selma, Alabama to Montgomery, Alabama on a quest for the basic human right to vote. The film chronicles a string of astonishing historical details, large and small -- including the intense, adversarial relationship between Dr. King and President Lyndon Johnson, the troubling involvement of the FBI and the unbreakable spirit of ordinary men and women who sacrificed and united around voting rights. But what emerged from these stark details is a vivid tapestry of an American turning point in the making and the stirring journey of a man finding his way through doubts and daunting obstacles towards not just leadership but the togetherness required to make real change in the world.
Even before it's release, Selma already had Oscar buzz in the air. But were they jumping the gun?
Next up for my review is Top Five! Here are the deets:
Director: Chris Rock
Starring: Chris Rock, Rosario Dawson, Kevin Hart, Cedric The Entertainer, Gabrielle Union
Synopsis:New York City comedian-turned-film star Andre Allen (Chris Rock), whose unexpected encounter with a journalist (Rosario Dawson) forces him to confront the comedy career—and the past—that he’s left behind.
