Spotlight ... Making news

SPOTLIGHT casts light on how the four-person Spotlight investigative team of the Boston
Globe unearthed tonnes of documents, encountered millions of obstacles and interviewed a multitude a people to reveal how the Boston Catholic Church shunted paedophile priests from one parish to another to avoid their discovery.
  On one hand, the film's about how the Catholic Church held such sway over the predominantly Catholic city.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens ... Sith happens

STAR Wars: The Force Awakens is neither bad nor good. The film introduces a new cast of characters
and smartly retains the old cast of Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill. There's enough time for the old and new ones to shine.
  I liked the fact that director J.J. Abrams chose a multicultural line-up of actors to spearhead the seventh instalment of this franchise.

Point Break ... What's the point?

POINT Break is the remake of the 1991 film of the same name starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick
Swayze. In the latter film, Reeves plays an FBI agent who infiltrates a gang of robber surfers headed by blond beach bum Swayze.
   The 2015 film is directed by Ericson Core, and blond Luke Bracey plays FBI agent Johnny Utah, a former motorcycle daredevil racer still hurting seven years after the death of his friend in a motorcycle accident. Venezuelan actor Edgar Ramirez plays Bodhi (the Swayze part).
