Movie Reviews: “The Expendables 3” and “Magic in the Moonlight”



   The Expendables 3
   Rated PG-13




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
   Rated PG-13




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.
