Runtime: 2hrs 22mins

The Judge features a star-studded cast of Robert Downey Jr, Robert Duvall, Vera Farmiga, Billy Bob Thornton and follows defense attorney Hank Palmer (played by Robert Downey Jr) who returns home upon hearing about the death of his mother. Hank seemingly strained relationship with his father Judge Palmer (Robert Duvall) is highlighted and things get rather interesting in the story when Judge Palmer gets accused of murder.

Here's my top 5 films I've enjoyed so far this year and the top 5 worst films that should have never been made.

Review - Godzilla (2014)

Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen.
Directed by Gareth Edwards.
Run-time: 2hrs 3mins

I was a bit skeptical about a Godzilla remake (and yes I did like the Matthew Broderick version growing up) but after watching Monsters a few weeks back, I thought director Gareth Edwards might be right guy for this job, seeing how had tackled his movie 'Monsters' with such lovely buildup. I'm happy to report that Gareth's style rubbed off on Godzilla and it turned out to be a pretty decent effort from him.
