Jeff's Pick:
Transcendence
Mucks up the Works

If Transcendence looks like a movie made by Christopher Nolan, it is because the movie is the directorial debut of Wally Pfister, who photographed every movie Nolan has made since Memento. The movie also features a sci-fi heavy premise that sounds a bit like Inception, only replacing dreams with artificial intelligence. Unfortunately, whereas Inception truly felt like it was something new and exciting, Transcendence pulls too many punches to truly be measured in the same category as Nolan’s film.

DVD Pick:
Gravity
It Will Drop Your Jaw

Gravity is a one-of-a-kind treat that is one of the few films to truly benefit from being seen in IMAX and in 3D. Director Alfonso Cuaron has directed a film that genuinely deserves to be called epic, despite its minimal 90-minute runtime. This is a cinematic experience unlike any other and it must be experienced to be believed.
