One word to describe Interstellar: mesmerizing. The film takes place in the near future, where a sort of 'second dust bowl' is taking place, and blights are killing crops everywhere. As a result, food is extremely scarce for everyone on the planet, making farming the most important job on Eart...

Fans may come to watch Fury in anticipation of yet another meaningless action film featuring a shirtless Brad Pitt surrounded by explosions as rock music plays in the background. But this movie is anything but that. Fury is a gripping WWII drama that tells the story of a group of men operating ...
