Southpaw is an R-rated 2015 sports drama film directed by Antoine Fuqua and written by Kurt Sutter. It stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whitaker, and Rachel McAdams. It tells the story of world champion boxer, Billy Hope, who loses his wife in a tragic accident, and has to fight to win back his life for his young daughter. We get to see excellent performances by Gyllenhaal and Whitaker, as well as Oona Laurence who plays Hope’s daughter, Leila. It’s tough, it’s raw, it’s emotional, it’s motivational; it’s an amazing 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.
