The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

"While the film is relatively faithful to the original novel, many details have been altered. Director Mark Herman keeps it simple, omitting many elements, while making Bruno's innocence the central focus. The process of discovery by the reader as Bruno begins to learn more about the real world is lost in the film adaptation, making it more difficult for the viewer to relate to Bruno. Although the simple storytelling works, it could have included many more details."

Bruno (Asa Butterfield) is a young boy living in Berlin in 1942 with his well-to-do family. But soon the family is forced to move to Poland due to his Father's (David Thewlis) promotion at the Krakow concentration camp.

Another horror that makes you question the intelligence of the characters, Oculus at least has a unique story that twists reality not only for the brother and sister but also for the audience. Read More »

Fed Up

Fed Up has an important message to impart but its dry presentation and doom-and-gloom approach seems destined to undercut whatever good it so clearly wants to do. Read More »
