Interstellar will have you questioning time. This big budget flick from the director of The Prestige and Inception promises to turn reality on its ear with an interaction with a black hole.

This picks up twenty years after the events of the first film, and from the looks of it the characters pick up right where they left off. Considering that the first film, Dumb and Dumber, could be considered high art the bar has been set pretty high for the sequel.

This flick is about an English reporter that gets detained in Iran for 100 days, and in that time the reporter goes through some very serious interrogation. This tale is based on the true story of reporter Maziar Bahari, so in this case the truth is so horrific that it could work as fiction.
One of the most anticipated films of the year has to be the upcoming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. The blockbuster series comes back again with this tale of class war and revolution, making it very relevant to our times.
