The Expendables 3
Barney (Sylvester Stallone) is back! This time, he’s taking on arms dealer and former Expendable team member Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson). Inserting new blood into his crew creates a few problems, mainly pitting the tech-savvy youngsters against the old and experienced. Can they overcome their differences to fight against their common enemy?
If you go into The Expendables 3 expecting to make a life-altering epiphany, you’ll be sadly disappointed. It’s simply a fun movie! Violent, yet humorous, The Expendables 3 doesn’t take itself too seriously, and neither should the viewer. The all-star cast appears to be having a great time, and I enjoyed see the old tough guys back in action.
Magic in the Moonlight
Set in the South of France in the1920’s, Magic in the Moonlight is a charming romantic comedy. Colin First plays Stanley, magician and debunker of false mediums, who is asked by a friend to determine if medium Sophie (Emma Stone) is a fake.
While I liked Magic in the Moonlight’s story, I loved the visuals! The scenery, costumes and cinematography are amazing-everything in this film is beautiful. The casting is spot-on; Colin Firth is perfect as Stanley, a self-absorbed know-it-all, and Emma Stone is enchantings as sweet Sophie.
