Cuban Fury

Though Cuban Fury could work as a story of someone who finds themselves after being shamed and bullied out of what they love to do, it never becomes enjoyable nor engaging enough to salsa its way into our hearts.

Godzilla (2014)

2014’s Godzilla is definitely better and more interesting to watch than its 1998 film adaptation. But I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news: this latest entry in the Godzilla franchise wasn’t all that great to me thanks to some things that frustrated my viewing.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ stellar performance and great chemistry with James Gandolfini should have made her an Academy Award nominee along with Gandolfini, but either voters forgot about them or maybe there’s a stigma against tv-made actors. Either way, Enough Said is easily one of the best films of 2013.
