Burnt (2015)

Rated M (Mature themes and coarse language) Burnt is a story of Chef Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper), a chef at the top of his game in Paris until his rock-star life-style of alcohol and drugs caused him to lose his friends, job and career. After spending his time in New Orleans shucking oysters as a…

Everest (2015)

PG-13 (for intense peril and disturbing images) Wow, that was intense. Watching Everest on an IMAX screen was a gruelling experience that had me gripping the edge of my seat and tensing up my whole body as the tragic story unfolded before me. Based on a true story documented by multiple sources, Everest is an…

Life of Pi (2012)
