World War Z is a 2013 action horror film directed by Marc Foster, written by Matthew Michael Carnahan, Drew Goddard, and Damon Lindelof based on the 2006 novel of the same name by Max Brooks. It stars Brad Pitt as Gerry Lane, a retired United Nations investigator who must travel the world to find a way to stop the worldwide zombie epidemic. Before you discard this film because you’re not into zombies, hear me out. I am not into the whole zombie hype that has taken the world by storm these past couple of decades. Usually anything with zombies in it, I ignore. Heck, even when this came out in theatres back in 2013 I looked the other way. But I was wrong to do that, at least with this particular film.

The Last Stand is an R-rated 2013 action film directed by South Korean Kim Jee-woon in his American directorial debut, and written by Andrew Knauer. The film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Forest Whitaker, Johnny Knoxville, Rodrigo Santoro and Eduardo Noriega. The film follows a small town tough sheriff and his inexperienced deputies who must stop a dangerous drug lord from escaping to Mexico. This was Arnold’s comeback after 10 years since Terminator 3 (2003) and it wouldn’t be an Arnie film without his one liners! This is a great example of a fun, feel-good, action-packed 90-minute film and I highly enjoyed it!

Coherence is a 2013 science fiction thriller indie film directed and written by James Ward Byrkit. It is so much more than what the sypnosis and trailer shows us. I had no idea what I was going to watch. All I knew was that it was a recommended sci-fi thriller. After 15 minutes I was glued to the screen and as the plot developed, I became addicted as the mystery kept growing and feeding my curious mind. What an exciting mind trip! The film has only 8 actors and 95% of the film is inside one house. That leaves the characters to carry the film and wow, they succeeded phenomenally! Truly one of the best science fiction and mind-baffling films I have ever seen. This is the type of film you watch many times, and each time you discover something new.
