Advance Review: Sharknado: The 4th Awakens - Bigger, Better, & Even Crazier

Sharknado: The 4th AwakensSyfy premieres the highly anticipated fourth installment of its hit global film franchise from The Asylum this weekend, Sharknado: The 4th Awakens.

The film takes place five years after the events in Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! The sharknados have been kept at bay thanks to billionaire CEO Aston Reynolds (Tommy Davidson), who's company, Astro-X, has found a way to stabilize the atmosphere and prevent the sharknados.

No one, however, is safe when the storms return and it's once again up to shark-killing hero Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) to save them all, as more and more 'nados pop up in Las Vegas and beyond, each different and wackier than the next.

Jupiter Ascending: A Visual Masterpiece That's Worth A Watch

Jupiter AscendingJupiter Ascending follows Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a young housecleaner who was destined for much more. With an uncanny resemblance to galactic royalty, she is thrust into the middle of a family drama of siblings vying for control of Earth. Accompanied by a genetically engineered hybrid hunter, Caine Wise (Channing Tatum), she must fight to protect the planet from tyrants who are set on harvesting off the world's population.

As expected at this point from an action film by the Wachowskis, the visuals on the film were absolutely stunning. There was always something gorgeous to look at, even when there wasn't action on screen. The world that was created for the movie was quite beautiful and unique, as were the makeup and costumes. The colors were vibrant, and in this case, watching the film in 3-D really helped to showcase the magnificence.

Epic Drama in Exodus: Gods and Kings

By Marcina Zaccaria

Exodus: Gods and KingsExodus: Gods and Kings
, the stunning action adventure drama directed by Ridley Scott, tells the story of Moses, the man who freed the Israelites.

Christian Bale (American Psycho and The Dark Knight Rises) is transformative as Moses. In him, the audience can see a tough warrior, a simple shepherd, and a man capable of parting the Red Sea. Bale shares the screen with Joel Edgerton, who plays the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses. Bale never seems hollow or withdrawn in the film, as he glares up to the sky and denounces God.

Exodus: Gods and Kings has enough sand and chariots to win the heart of the most stoic movie watcher. It is a story of power and enormous consequence. The lead actors consider who God is, and whether God or man has the greater power to kill. The swordplay and the emotion behind it are fierce, and the film, as a whole, is relentless. It doesn’t focus so much on good and evil, but rather, on the juxtaposition of massive impact and new movement. Though movie making has never seemed bigger or bolder, the film brings up real issues of humanity and frailty.

Looking Inside the Mind of Leonardo

By Marcina Zaccaria

Peter CapaldiInside the Mind of Leonardo, a new movie from History Films, is a stunning motion picture in 3D, featuring Peter Capaldi and directed by Julian Jones.

The documentary film takes place in Florence and Milan, and features potent monologues performed by BAFTA Award winning actor Peter Capaldi. Capaldi plays Leonardo in the film. The slim actor who received an Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film for his movie, Franz Kafka’s It’s a Wonderful Life, reveals the emotion behind Leonardo, the man who many regard as a genius.

Image after image, monologue after monologue, the film doesn’t fail to disappoint. So much is known about Leonardo da Vinci. The inventor, the artist, and the military theorist had over 6,000 pages of notebooks. Da Vinci’s notebooks feature visionary drawings, musings on experience and causation, and mundane lists of food items. Holding information about beauty, flight, and war, da Vinci’s musings make exceptional sense when spoken by Capaldi. Throughout the film, the Scottish actor brings life and meaning to Renaissance concepts and ideals.
