Thanksgiving is on its way and students are ready to go home and chow down on Turkey, cranberry sauce and all kinds of traditional dishes. After stuffing your face with, well, stuffing, there needs to be time for your stomach to settle down and digest.
The Martian, directed by Ridley Scott, starring Matt Damon, has done phenomenal in the box office and it isn’t hard to see why. The movie dominated during September opening weekend and continued on an upscale in October, generating an estimated $11.7 million over Halloween weekend.

Of course one of the things people like most about Halloween is getting scared, but not everyone likes scary movies. If you are still trying to get into the Halloween spirit and you’re not a huge fan of bloody murderers, then here are ten movies that are great for watching with your younger siblings, your kids, or cuddled up alone in your room.
2013 was an interesting year for movies, especially within the past couple of months when all of the films deemed Oscar-worthy were released. I’ve heard enough about “Gravity” and “12 Years a Slave” – we all know they’re both going to clean up at the Academy Awards. So here are my top films of 2013.
The new Warner Brothers sports comedy, “Grudge Match”, opened in theaters on Dec. 25 and brought in about $7 million its opening week. Directed by Peter Segal and starring Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro, Kim Basinger and Kevin Hart, the chemistry between the legendary actors

With all of the disposable rubbish that comes out of Hollywood, it’s a breath of fresh air when a good movie is released. It’s so unfortunate that the film industry has had the stink of the comic book genre linger on the business for years now. It would seem that a lot of the movies that get greenlit nowadays are the results of overeducated agents, ne’er-do-well producers and excessive cocaine use. But all of those bad feelings were purged upon one screening of “The Counselor.”
A 17-year-old girl taunted and tormented by her peers possesses the ability to make terrible things happen with her thoughts. A cruel prank turned a magical night at the prom into a literal bloodbath. This is the story of “Carrie.”
Like the one man trinity known as Superman/Clark Kent/Kal-El, producer Christopher Nolan and director Zack Snyder have a difficult time maintaining a consistent cinematic identity with their “Man of Steel.” “Steel” is an origin story that tells how Kal-El was born, shows how Clark was raised by foster parents in Kansas, and finally how Superman came to be.
Imagine a United States of America without crime. Imagine our country with an employment percentage higher than Steve Nash’s career free throw percentage (90.42 percent as of today). Now imagine working in customer service and knowing that for one day out of the year, you could legally murder every cheap, ignorant idiot that stiffs you out of a tip on a $200 bill. The key to this utopian United States with rock bottom crime rates and sky high employment rates is that for one day out of the year any and all crime is legal. You can murder, steal, loiter or even solicit next to “no-soliciting” signs.
I’m not a Trekkie. Let’s get that out of the way right now. When my friends suggested viewing the premature summer blockbuster “Star Trek: Into Darkness,” this past weekend, I was far from excited. In fact, I believe I used the term “luke warm” to announce my displeasure. Sure, there was a supersized tin of eye candy available, but Benedict Cumberbatch’s deep vibrating vocals and Chris Pine’s toilet bowl blue eyes can only take you so far. Boy, am I glad my friends were cruel enough to hog tie me and throw me in that nerdy Ford Focus because that movie was awesome.
With “Mud,” writer and director Jeff Nichols has done the impossible by making me a believer in Matthew McConaughey’s acting ability.
