Moonrise Kingdom Review
Young lovers Sam (Jared Gilman) and Suzy (Kara Hayward) decide to run away together which causes a huge local search party to find the lovers.Moonrise Kingdom is a great, charming, sweet and amusing film, but what makes Moonrise kingdom so great?

The Way Way Back (2013) Review
On paper The Way Way Back seems like a simple coming of age movie about a 14-year old on summer vacation making unexpected friends at a water park. Although it is simple, there is more to it.

But during his vacation we see him come out of his shell as he finally finds a place where he belongs and meets people who actually care about him.

There are some movies that you love so much, that when it finally ends, you feel a bit upset. I get this feeling a lot. But when I hear that a sequel is in the works sometimes I get excited, but the problem is will the sequel deliver? Will it be as good as the original?

In this blog post I will discuss the three different types of sequels you will probably have encountered.
