127 Hours — Buy it!

127 Hours was nominated for Best Picture at this year’s academy awards. It also brought in nominations for Best Actor, Best Song, Best Score, and Best Adapted Scr eenplay. Danny Boyle’s newest is definitely worth the price.

Burlesque — Skip it!

Burlesque came in at a depressing 37% on It won Best Original Song at this year’s Golden Globes, but was not nominated for an Oscar under any category.

Faster — Skip it!

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s latest action romp seemed to split both the audience and the critics. Watch it at your own risk!
