Ender's Game
The climactic battle scene that builds to a spectacular crescendo in Ender's Game is at least as thrilling as the overall visual splendor of Gravity. The difference is that Ender's Gamemakes its mark as an all-out science fiction extravaganza as opposed to Gravity's masterful attempt to reproduce science fact. The similarity is the photorealistic sensationalism that both movies deliver...  ...It's probably safe to assume that we'll see Ender again, which is an exciting prospect for his character and the constantly evolving science of moviemaking magic. --Ted Fry --amazon--






Escape Plan

The script is surprisingly well-written. Stallone's methods of escape are explained in intricate detail, all of which are believable and logical. Stallone is still likeable as a lead actor and as usual, you find yourself rooting for him. The action is done old school, not much in the way of CGI (with the exception of a pull away shot of the hi-tech prison).   --amazon--
