Movie Reviews: “The Gift” & “American Ultra”

   The Gift
   Rated R

After moving back to Simon’s hometown, married couple Simon and Robyn have a chance encounter with one of Simon’s socially awkward class mates.  Will Gordo successfully insinuate himself into the couple’s lives before each character’s true nature is revealed? 

Writing much about The Gift might give something away, so let’s just say this unpredictable psychological thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat! 

   American Ultra
   Rated R

Anxiety-ridden, stoner Mike is trying to figure out the best way to propose to his loving girlfriend, Phoebe, when their lives are thrown into chaos.  Unbeknownst to him, he’s a highly trained assassin whose skills are activated when a government agency tries to eliminate him.

Though both violent and gory, American Ultra doesn’t take itself too seriously.  It has just the right amount of action and humor and a plot twist that will keep your eyes glued to the screen!
