Room Movie Review & Film Summary

**The following is a wonderful review for the new film Room, however, it does contain minor spoilers that are given away on IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes. But, if you plan on seeing this film and haven’t read anything about it, I believe it would be best to see it without knowing a thing for the best moviegoing experience – Jacob Tiranno**

Most of us typically view rooms, especially rooms in our homes, as our escape from the outside world. Whether it is the living room, the kitchen, the dinning room, or the bedroom, people can find solace in their favorite rooms. But what if, one room became your entire world? One singular room only confined by four walls is now the bane of your existence. Sounds horrifying, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, for Ma- formerly known as Joy- and her newly turned 5-year-old boy, Jack, this is their nightmarish reality.

Trainwreck Movie Review & Film Summary

Trainwreck marks the arrival of comedic superstar—Amy Schumer. Yes, she’s been hard at work for years doing stand-up, celebrity roasts, and her show on Comedy Central, but now she’s made a movie—a great movie— and it is hilarious. It has a big heart, some wonderful truth and even has a message or two. But don’t worry, it is raunchy enough to keep that R-rating. It is one of my favorite comedies of the year. For those who aren’t familiar with Schumer, they will be in no time.

Schumer won “Breakthrough Performer of the Year” at the 2015 CinemaCon here in Las Vegas, and she presented the attendees with a sneak peek of this film at the Universal Pictures presentation. Before the trailer, she explained how this project was very personal to her, as it is based on real-life memories and dating past dating experiences. Luckily, the movie feels very real. Knowing that when I saw this movie, I was able to believe it—most of it, at least, because Trainwreck doesn’t feel like a generic rom-com, though it does have its familiar moments.
