The Loft review

Review: The Loft

Megan's Top 15
2014 was a pretty great year for movies, so coming up with a year end list was pretty tough for me. Originally I thought I'd just do top 5, and then top 10... but no. It had to be top 15 because I saw so many awesome films last year, and it just wouldn't be fair to ignore the movies in the 11 through 15 slots.  So let's get the ball rolling...     read

Pan Trailer
  Watch Video I had no idea there was going to be a Peter Pan origin story until just a few days ago, when I saw images of Hugh Jackman dressed up as a crazy pirate. I love Peter Pan, so part of me is excited, but another part of me wonders why we need an origin story for him. Either way, here's the trailer for Pan, which actually looks pretty fun.   read

Interstellar
  Watch Video Interstellar is the sort of movie that polarized its audience. Some people hated it, other people loved it. I'm in the "loved it" category personally, so I'm enjoying all the speculation about its ending and whether or not it...   read

Creepy one minute film
  Watch Video The winner of the 2014 Filminute one-minute-film festival, Tuck Me In is an awesome example of minimalist horror. After years and years of so-called scary movies that go on for way too long and show too much, this gives viewers just the right taste of something to be pretty disturbed by.   read
