Biutiful

Review (9/10)
(By Rayna)

In the Spanish-language film Biutiful, Javier Bardem plays Uxbal, a man who is emotionally and spiritually connected to the afterlife while struggling with parenting two young children who sense the danger of his imminent death. The film intensely explores the issue of fatherhood; the challenges of being a father, the fear of losing a father and realizing the fact that you’re becoming your own father to your children.

While Snyder certainly dipped into his 300  ...

Slumdog Millionaire

Review (9/10)
(By Brendan Cullin)

Most times when I read about a movie with a lot of hype surrounding it, I find more often than not, the movie never actually lives up to the accolades it receives. "Slumdog Millionaire" is a movie that received such hype. I believe, as I write this review, it has been nominated for best picture by 11 of 20 critics associations. It has already received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Picture in the Drama category. It most certainly will ...
