(Movies) Short Term 12 – highly recommended

“At a foster-care facility for at-risk teenagers, Grace is a young counselor trying to do her best for kids who often have been pulled from the worst kinds of home situations. Even then, life is not easy as Grace and her colleagues care for kids who are too often profoundly scarred, even as they try to have lives of their own.”

Movie of the Week – Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

One of the best blockbuster films I’ve seen in recent years. This is the level all blockbuster films should be at.
And Caesar….Oh you magnificent Caesar…..

Movie of the week – Tropa de Elite 2

While not as good as the (superb) first movie this is still an enjoyable sequel. An action movie about political and police corruption in Brazil.

Movie of the week – Starred Up

An excellent British film even though i found the ending too sentimenal,
especially when compared to how raw the rest of the movie was.
