Curious Worlds: The Art & Imagination of David Beck

“Curious Worlds: The Art & Imagination of David Beck” is an enchanting tour of the mind of a craftsman who builds beguiling fantasy worlds out of limitless ingenuity.
The life and death of soul singer Amy Winehouse is documented in the new movie "Amy" (2015).

Amy

The turbulent and tragic life and death of soul singer Amy Winehouse is laid bare with shocking clarity in "Amy," a new documentary biopic directed by Asif Kapadia.

Liam Neeson and Joel Kinnaman play a father and son trying to survive a mobster's wrath in "Run All Night," a 2015 Warner Brothers release.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson returns as DSS Agent Luke Hobbs in "Furious Seven," a 2015 Universal Pictures release directed by James Wan.

Liam Neeson is a father trying to save his son from a mobster's wrath in "Run All Night," a 2015 Warner Brothers release.

Run All Night

Wheezing, limping and lumbering all night much more than it runs, Liam Neeson's most arthritic action movie to date isn't one with a number wedged in its title.
Sharlto Copley provides the motion-capture performance and voice of the robotic title character in "Chappie," a 2015 Columbia Pictures release directed by Neill Blomkamp.

Chappie

"Chappie" is neither the easy kind of bad nor the sort from which co-writer / director Neill Blomkamp can't bounce back ... but damn, does it hurt to watch.
