Series: FEATURE FILM, AGES 12-18
Description - An FBI agent and an Interpol detective track a team of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their performances and reward their audiences with the money. Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo and Woody Harrelson.
KIDS FIRST!® Adult Jurors say - coming soon. See Youth review.
KIDS FIRST!® Kid Jurors say - I absolutely love this film. "Now You See Me" is like nothing I've ever seen before. "Now You See Me" tells the story of a group of magicians called The Four Horsemen who use their skills to pull off some of the greatest international robberies of their generation. Featuring Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), Merritt McKenny (Woody Harrelson), Henley Reeves (Isla Fisher) and Jack Wilder (Dave Franco), the Four Horsemen make a dream team of street magicians. Since they have made their stunts public, allowing the world to "witness" the robberies, authorities are in hot pursuit of the four, now wanted criminals. Detective Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) is accompanied in his search for the illusive magicians by Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman) and French detective Alma Dray (Melanie Laurent). Will the Four Horsemen be able to pull of their final act without being caught, or will it be curtains for the criminal performers?

The plot is so original and full of fresh ideas and witty comedy. I love how fast paced this film is, I swear there isn't a dull moment from beginning to end. The plot itself has so many twists and turns it should be a pretzel, but it keeps the audience guessing the whole time and hits you with major shock factor. The acting in this film is incredible. It features a group of incredible actors - Morgan Freeman, Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Woody Harrelson and many others. I love how each character has a unique quirk and personality that you can really see, but they all work together so well. The cinematography and special effects in this film are phenomenal. It is bursting with rich colors and textures, drawing you into the magic and making the illusions appear so real. The soundtrack is also amazing. It is suits each scene very well, while keeping a consistent theme and feel throughout the movie. "Now You See Me" is definitely not one to miss.

It's hard for me to pick a favorite character because I love all of the Horsemen, but when it comes down to it I have to say I like the characters Daniel Atlas and Jack Wilder. Daniel, played by Jesse Eisenberg, often tries to assert himself as the head of the Four Horsemen. He is controlling, very specific and difficult to deal with, but he is also the funniest character which is attributed to all of his demanding qualities. I love every film Jesse Eisenberg is in and I think he is perfect for the role of Daniel Atlas. I also like Jack Wilder, played by Dave Franco, because he is the craftiest of the magicians. He isn't the "card trick" or "read your mind" type, he's just a good old fashioned pick-pocket for whom no door is ever locked.. He is sort of the "muscle" to the operation because he is able to help the horsemen get out of tight situations and he is also very funny.

My favorite scene is when the Four Horsemen have to escape from the FBI after their second robbery. Jack Wilder has to stay behind to burn secret files. When he has an unexpected run-in with Detective Rhodes, an action filled fight sequence and high speed chase follow. This scene is filled with suspense, action and incredible stunts and it shows that the Horsemen are always two steps ahead.

I recommend this film for ages 12+ because of violence and mild mature language. Overall I give "Now You See Me" 5 out of 5 stars. Reviewed by Raven D, age 15, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

Series: FEATURE FILM, AGES 12-18
Description - Over the course of his summer break, a teenager comes into his own thanks in part to the friendship he strikes up with one of the park's managers. Directors: Nat Faxon, Jim Rash; Writers: Nat Faxon, Jim Rash; Stars: Steve Carell, AnnaSophia Robb, Toni Collette
KIDS FIRST!® Adult Jurors say - Rated PG-13 for thematic elements, language, some sexual content and brief drug material
KIDS FIRST!® Kid Jurors say - "The Way, Way Back" tells the story of Duncan, played by Liam James, who is an awkward teen dealing with his mom's boyfriend, Trent, played by Steve Carell. Trent and Duncan don't exactly see eye to eye on most things and when the two of them are forced to spend the entire summer together, things get a bit complicated. Duncan decides to get away from his family by getting a job at the local amusement park, Water Wizz. There, he becomes friends with the manager Owen, played by Sam Rockwell, and Duncan begins to find himself with the help of his new friend.

I personally do not like this movie very much. I feel like it has nothing too special about it and the acting seems somewhat forced, the lines are cheesy and the plot is unoriginal. All of the scenes are long with very few cuts which does make it feel more realistic, but it also makes the film too drawn out. I am also bothered by the fact that there is hardly any music in this film, so when there is silence it is awkward in a non comical way.

My favorite character is Owen because Sam Rockwell does this character justice. I like the character Owen because he is very sweet to Duncan. He sees that he is having a hard time and teaches him how to stand on his own.

My favorite scene would have to be when Duncan is working his first day at Water Wizz. There are a bunch of teens break dancing in the park and Owen is supposed to break it up. Since he is such a slacker he gives Duncan this task and it is hilarious to watch him try to get the people to listen to him. It really shows how awkward he is and even though he is uncomfortable doing this task, he still does it to help out a friend.

I recommend this film for ages 13+ because there are mild profanities, inappropriate humor and drug use. I rate this 3 out of 5 stars because it is entertaining for the time that you're in the theater, but it isn't memorable or something I would see again.

Series: FEATURE FILM, AGES 12-18
Description - After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. Director: J.J. Abrams; Writers: Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman; Stars: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence
KIDS FIRST!® Adult Jurors say - Quite the spectacle. For those of us who grew up watching the TV series, this is like comfort food with iconic characters - Captain Kirk, Spock, Bones, Scotty, Uhura, Sulu - the whole gang. Die-hard Trekkies might be disappointed that it does not follow to the letter the original "Wrath of Kahn" storyline but, hey, get a life - there are more ways than one to play Hamlet as well. The 3D production is a visual feast, especially when flying objects are coming your way. Great performances, excellent costumes, love the futuristic landscapes and buildings. Among of my favorite things were the images of vehicles in the future - even the hospital beds that floated down the hallways. I dreamt afterwards about how that was done; I mean outside the magical world of filmmaking. Magnetism perhaps. Fun, action adventure flick with no graphic bloody images. Very enjoyable.
KIDS FIRST!® Kid Jurors say - Satirical, Emotional and Epic are the only words to describe the new movie Star Trek Into Darkness. I got a chance to visit the Paramount lot for an exclusive screening of this movie, which left me in awe and thrill. Although this movie is a sequel to the previous Star Trek series, movie goers who are not familiar with the story will understand the plot clearly. The actors portray their characters very well thanks to the director, J.J Abrams. The scenery and set for the futuristic year of 2240 are so vivid and realistic, audience members will forget they are in the year 2013. This movie is also produced for the IMAX 3D, which puts all the explosions and fight scenes in your face.

The relationship of all the characters on the iconic Starship Enterprise are deep and meaningful. Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachery Quinto) develop a brotherly love through the struggles they conquer. The Villain, Khan (Benedict Cumberpatch) is a scary two-faced character that will leave the audience guessing his fate until the very end. Not only does the main star achieve his role perfectly, but the co-stars also do an superb job. The writers, Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof successfully add comedy in the script to bring an emotional roller coaster to the audience.

The set ranges from modern skyscrapers to futuristic spaceships. The designers portrayed the theme very well, using many computer generated images to create the year of 2240 in a way that makes it seem so real. The 3D element is an added bonus because it brings the action up close. The beginning scene has lots of running and fighting sequences and yet it is all filmed in such detail that the characters seem like they are going to run off screen.

After watching this movie, my passion for Star Trek has been sparked! I rate this movie 5 out of 5 because it balances the comedy and action scenes so well. It has multiple themes taking place but the on-going theme "the power of friendship can build you or destroy you" is present throughout. This movie contains a hand-full of violence but is not bloody or graphic. The action sequences, violence and realistic make-up could be scary for younger audience members so, I recommend this for ages 13 to18. This movie has sparked an interest in Star Trek for me and hopefully, it will do the same to you.

Description - Sparks fly when Wade Walker crashes the Peeples annual reunion in the Hamptons to ask for their precious daughter Grace's hand in marriage.
KIDS FIRST!® Adult Jurors say - coming soon. See youth critic's comments.
KIDS FIRST!® Kid Jurors say - This film has really good comedy and I like it.

Wade Walker (Craig Robinson) wants to marry the lovely Grace Peeples (Kerry Washington (Scandal). They attend the Peeples annual reunion in the Hamptons where Wade wants to ask Grace for her hand in marriage but everything is not going as he plans.

"Peeples" is a good family comedy. I like the way the two families get together, as this is not your ordinary family reunion. However, I can see this happening. I like the plot and it keeps my interest. The cast does a wonderful acting job and I truly enjoy it. The soundtrack is very entertaining. My favorite character is Chris Walker (Malcolm Barrett), brother of Wade Walker, because he is very funny and does things you would not expect people to do. My favorite scene is when Wade accidentally drinks Grace's mother "shroom juice" and starts hallucinating at the Moby Dick Festival. Then he begins to argue with Judge Peeples because he thinks he is insulting him while he is giving a speech. They start fighting and Wade passes out. This is so hilarious and kept me laughing!

Writer and first-time Director Tina Gordon Chism (Drum Line) and Tyler Perry (Good Deeds, Madea's Witness Protection) present great humor about families coming together. "Peeples" also stars comedian and actor, David Alan Grier who gives us a lot to laugh about.

There are a lot of great lessons and messages in this film. One is to always be open with whatever problems you may have so that you can get help. Another is to always be yourself no matter what people think about you.

"Peeples" is rated PG-13 and I recommend it to ages 13 to adults. Please be aware that it does have some content that is not suitable for younger viewers. I give this film 5 out of 5 stars. It's very enjoyable; the cinematography is great and has an exciting climax. It has tons of comedy and keeps me laughing.

Laugh with your family and have a great time enjoying "Peeples."

Series: FEATURE FILM, AGES 12-18
Description - An adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Long Island-set novel, where Midwesterner Nick Carraway is lured into the lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Soon enough, however, Carraway will see through the cracks of Gatsby's nouveau riche existence, where obsession, madness, and tragedy await
KIDS FIRST!® Adult Jurors say - coming soon. See youth critic's review.
KIDS FIRST!® Kid Jurors say - "The Great Gatsby" tells the story of Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), a secretive millionaire who is in love with a wealthy woman named Daisy Buchanan, played by Carey Mulligan. When Daisy's cousin, Nick Carraway, played by Tobey Maguire, moves in next to Gatsby, he doesn't hesitate to use Nick to get close to his lost love. With the publicity constantly involved in his life, Gatsby finds it hard keeping his love for Daisy hidden from her husband. When Daisy's Husband, Tom Buchanan. Played by Joel Edgerton, discovers his wife's affection for Gatsby, he is quick to make sure it doesn't last. When Jay Gatsby's past is revealed, his entire life begins to unravel. Can Gatsby and Daisy make a life for themselves or will the past control the future?

I am in love with this movie! Words can't describe how incredible the entire film is, but I'll do my best. This film is in 3D, which makes the incredible set and costume design come to life. The visuals in this film could have been a movie of its own because they are so breathtakingly beautiful. The rich colors and textures make the cinematography pop. This film is set in the 20s, where life for the wealthy was lavish and over the top 24-7 and the wardrobe really shows that off. The entire look of this movie is so rich and lavish that it sucks you in and you feel as if you can grasp the fabrics and streamers of Jay Gatsby's parties because everything is so full-bodied with color. I feel like you could take a screenshot of every frame in this film and then send it off to a photography museum because it is just so striking.

The soundtrack is another thing of wonder in this film. It features modern songs such as Jay-Z and Kanye West's "No Church in the Wild" as well as Lana Del Rey's "Young and Beautiful" and other artist such as Florence + the Machine, Beyonce, William and even a few dubstep mixes, however all these modern hits are meshed with 20s rag time, giving it an authentic feel with a modern edge. It took me a few scenes to get used to because when I first heard modern artist Frank Ocean singing while a 20s-themed trumpet tune played, I was a little shocked. Once I warmed up to it, I fell in love with the unique sound. I actually think it is a very clever way to make the younger generation become more enthralled with the movie because the music we are used to at parties is the more modern sound. I think it is a clever way to make the festivities of this movie more appealing to a younger crowd.

My favorite scene would have to be when Nick goes to one of Gatsby's massive parties. People from all over New York and from all walks of life would flock to Gatsby's house weekend after weekend to indulge in his lavish lifestyle, even though none of them knew Gatsby or had ever met him. In the very first party scene you really become engorged in the luxurious accommodations of Gatsby's palace. His house is filled with streamers, dancers, outrageously dressed guests and vivid decor. The entire scene is so visually pleasing. I also really enjoyed the scene where Gatsby plans for Daisy to visit Nick at his house and then "coincidentally" stop by so he can see her again after 5 years. I like this scene because Gatsby always seems like such a confident man who is on top of the world but, when he is faced with seeing his true love after so many years apart, he gets the demeanor of a squeamish school boy. It is so cute how he obsesses over Daisy in the beginning of the scene and it is touching how nervous he gets before she comes over. Leonardo's acting in this scene is truly astounding and his subtle display of emotions accents the fact that he is frantically trying to conceal his emotions.

My favorite character is Jay Gatsby because he is such a complex man. He builds his entire dream life to impress Daisy. He builds his home across the lake from her house so he can see her, throws parties hoping she'll attend, and does everything in his power to be near to her which is very humbling considering he could do virtually anything with his riches. Leonardo's performance in this film deserves an award because of how realistically he portrayed Gatsby. I truly respect Leonardo as an actor because no matter what role he is playing I never see it as Leo playing so and so, but I see him as the actual character. He full-heartedly embodies Jay Gatsby and shows the depths of the character in such a remarkable way. I loved every second of his performance.

Overall I give this film 5 out of 5 stars, I would give it more if I could! "The Great Gatsby" has everything I look for in a film - well executed plot, excellent visuals, unique music, and a brilliant cast and crew. I recommend this film for ages 13 and up for excessive drinking and mature situations. I can't wait to see this film again, so be sure to go see "The Great Gatsby" when it hits theaters May 10th.

KIDS FIRST!® Adult Jurors say - I am such a fan of master filmmaker, Ang Lee and his latest masterpiece is just that! Life of Pi brings to the screen the best-selling book by Yann Martel in a visual extravaganza. From the very beginning, you can almost smell the Indian world of Pi and his family in Pondichery, India. During his 227 days at sea in a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger, we experience the range of emotions that Pi experiences dealing with his situation and his survival. Newcomer, Suraj Sharma's portrayal of Pi just pulls you in. He completely embraces his role and, although much of the footage was computer generated, you really believe that he is there on the boat with this Bengal tiger. It is at times terrifying. I had to cover my eyes at times. It is truly an extraordinary story, told in an extraordinary way.
KIDS FIRST!® Kid Jurors say - The most amazing 3D quality movie that shows underwater footage and sea life. "Life of Pi" is based on a popular book by Yann Martel's novel that sold over 7 million copies. It's about a boy name Piscine Patel known as Pi (Suraj Sharma). He has a good life growing up in his father's zoo in Pondicherry, a French colony. Due to hard times, they have to close down the zoo and move some of the animals to Canada with them. The move to Canada is in a big Japanese cargo ship and all the animals are at the bottom of the ship. A big storm hits the ship and sinks it. The survivors are Pi, a tiger (Richard Parker), zebra, hyena, orangutan and a rat. They are all in a small life boat from the cargo ship. After several days, the only two survivors are Pi and Richard Parker. They were afraid of each other but need each other to survive.

There are so many scenes with great cinematography. The most memorable ones are the underwater footage and the sinking of the cargo ship is so real and clear. The 3D brings out the glowing of the jelly fish and the blue wale vividly. Special effects of the tiger is the best part. It seems so real, I thought that the tiger was actually in the boat with Pi. The part I did not like is when the animals were fighting each other. It's too hard to watch the survival of the fittest.

The acting in this movie is so great. Suraj show a lot of emotions with his eyes and he stay in character and the audience can feel his emotions. It's so amazing to see his weight loss as the days go by at sea. My favorite character is Richard Parker. He helps Pi survive the shipwreck and at times he seems more human than creature. The lesson in this movie is anything is possible. Pi survives over seven months in the Pacific Ocean with just faith and Richard Parker. I rank this movie 4 out of 5 stars. I give this age range 8 and up. Cheyenne Nguyen, age 9, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.

This is truly an amazing story, with a great adventure that is hard to believe. Pi, (Suraj Sharma) an Indian boy, is on a ship with his family who is moving to Canada. One night there is a terrible storm that sinks the ship and only Pi, a Hyena, Zebra, Orangutan and a Bengal Tiger whose name is Richard Parker survive. They are all in one of the small life boats trying to stay alive. After a while it only becomes Pi and Richard Parker who are adrift in the Pacific Ocean. Pi is now trying to survive, but is in fear of Richard Parker.

Based on the best-selling novel by Yann Martel, this adventure is created in 3D and is one of my new favorites. The visual effects are amazing and capture the marine life really well with all its beautiful colors. I like the way this film is set up like someone is telling it as a story, this really keeps my attention. One of my favorite scenes is when a big whale comes out of the ocean; it is so big and pretty to see. It is incredible. I also like the way we learn how the Tiger is named Richard Parker. It is somewhat funny and unusual. I would love to know How Director, Ang Lee, directs all the animals in this film, it is truly amazing how they act. David Magee, (screenplay writer) does a remarkable job on transforming a great novel into an amazing script. Other casts in Life of Pi include Vibish Sivakumar (Ravi Patel) and Rafe Spall (The Writer).

A big message I found is to never lose hope no matter where you are in life. Pi is in the middle of the ocean for many many days with a big storm, and a Tiger, but thru it all he never loses hope to be rescued.

I recommend this film for ages 8 to adults. Younger ages may be a little frightened when they see some of the animal scenes, but other than that, this is a must see. You can enjoy it with your family and friends. I give Life of Pi 5 out of 5 stars. I love the message and the visual effects. This is a great story of hope and determination. Believe the unbelievable and see the amazing adventure in Life of Pi. Brianna Hope Beaton, age 13, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.

Do you love an inspirational fill as much as I do? Well if you do, go out and buy "Life of Pi", out now on Blu-Ray and DVD. This inspirational movie is about a young man who overcomes a disaster at sea, which sends him on an amazing adventure. The Life of Pi was written by David Magee and directed by Academy Award winning Ang Lee and is adapted from the best-selling book of the same name, which was written by Yann Martel.

This film recounts the voyage that Piscine Molitor Patel, better known as Pi, played by newcomer Suraj Sharma, and his family take that goes horribly wrong. See how this life changing voyage will take Pi and an epic adventure of self-discovery.

My favorite character is Pi, because his inner strength is truly inspiring and I find it so up lifting to watch how he changes and grows as a person throughout this movie. Suraj is brilliant in playing the lead role of Pi. This is a great film, so while I don't have a favorite scene, I will say that I love the special features so much. They take you on the nearly four year journey that it took for Ang Lee to complete this film. Ang takes you through process of making this film, from the 3,000 plus actors that they audition to find the right person to play Pi, to Ang's attention to detail in creating his own ocean. I love seeing the amount of hard work and preparation that Suraj Sharma went through to prepare to play Pi.

The cinematography, headed by Claudio Miranda, is nothing short of extraordinary. I love how he has a giant wave tank built on the end of runway in Taiwan. It is amazing to see the transformation from an open wave pool, to the final product in the middle of an "ocean". The CGI, created by Rhythm and Hues, was absolutely mind blowing. The CGI animation used to create the Bengal Tiger was amazing. You can't tell which scenes use the live Bengal Tiger and which were the CGI created Tiger.

I rate this movie 5 out of 5 stars. This is a great story of faith and perseverance. With a great director and a cast that is remarkable story that you will love. While geared towards adults, I think even those 13 and up will really love this film. And remember "It is true that those we meet can change us, sometimes so profoundly so that we are not the same afterwards." Julianna Noone, age 12, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
