Anne Hathaway is a writer who has lost her way. When her boyfriend breaks up with her, she moves from New York City back to her small hometown where she is able to reconnect with an old friend (Jason Sudeikis). Then one day she wakes up to discover that a giant monster has attacked Seoul, South Korea, and to make matters worse, and weirder, she discovers that she controls the every move of this monster. The daring creativity on display is a stunning example of an imagination gone wild. Yes it’s a little crazy and sure you have to constantly ask yourself “what is this?,” but the further you go through the rabbit hole the better it gets. B+

When three retired friends (Oscar winners Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin) discover they are going to lose their pension, they risk everything by deciding to rob a bank in order to safely make it through their golden years and stick it to the man. With all of this talent, including the usually great director Zach Braff, you’d think you were looking at a classic caper comedy. But instead you get a stale adventure that is way too light on laughs. It’s a great thought but poor execution. C+
