This movie, it make-a me cry! I took my five-year old daughter to see this on Sunday thinking it would be a sure-fire homerun for her. This movie ended up surprising me in many ways. 1. I liked it far more than she did. She also is probably the only kid in the world who didn't love Frozen (she prefers Inside Out, Shaun the Sheep). 2. I never thought I'd enjoy the music and songs as much as I did. I thought they were great. ...

I'm not sure where to even start with this one. There are so many scenes done in such a unique way that I haven't seen before.

Fantastic. Great crime drama starring Chris Pine and the always amazing Jeff Bridges as a Texas Ranger trying to outwit some small-time bank robbers. Pretty boy Chris Pine takes a bit of time to grow into the role of a mastermind bank robber, but don't worry. He does. All the characters are remarkably deep. Even just a random waitress is explored to a surprising amount. The cinematography is beautiful. You really feel the big sky of Texas and it's great. Note that this isn't an action movie at...
