Andrea's Review of "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies"
Well, that really didn't need to be three movies.
People have been saying that about “The Hobbit” movies from the beginning, but “The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Hours...err, Armies” really hammers the point home.
Andrea's Review of "Force Majeure"
Everyone goes under the microscope in “Force Majeure,” and nobody walks away clean. It's an extremely well crafted film, but the most remarkable thing about it is its awareness. Many American movies (often in the independent or indie scene) are interested in exploring the various issues at play in “Force Majeure,” but are blocked by the filmmakers' own isolation from any other kind of people but their own. Most are unaware or uninterested in how their own privilege plays a part in their story. (See “Obvious Child” and even “Whiplash.” Would the protagonists be able to accomplish half as much if they had to work full-time?)
