Synopsis - Inferno

Set after the events of The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) wakes up in a hospital bed with no recollection of the past couple of days. Langdon and a nurse named Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) soon find themselves on the run from an unknown assailant that wants to kill Robert Langdon. The two then learn of a virus known as Inferno that, when released, will kill half of the world's population. Robert Langdon and Sienna Brooks must work together in an adventure that takes them across Europe while they try to piece together Langdon's missing memories, find out who wants to kill him, where the virus is and how to stop it before it is too late.

Recommendation - Inferno

What was this movie's biggest pro was also it's biggest con. The movie setup the issue of overpopulation in a powerful way but failed to deliver a compelling movie about that topic. Instead this was a mindless movie of following Robert Langdon piecing things together while exploring magnificent scenery. Unfortunately all the good things in this movie were cancelled out by the bad which resulted in a very average movie. This movie will not blow you away, or challenge your mystery solving skills. I recommend checking this movie out if you have seen both The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons and even then I think you will be somewhat let down. If you have not seen both of the two previous movies then this movie is not worth seeing, not because it will confuse you as a result of not seeing the previous movies, but because this movie is not strong enough to stand on it's own since (again) it is a very average movie. So I would not recommend adding this movie to your home video collection.

Synopsis - The Light Between Oceans

Tom Sherbourne (Micael Fassbender) moves to a small town to work as a lighthouse attendant in the lighthouse located on an isolated island. Before taking a boat from the small town to the lighthouse, he meets Isabel Graysmark (Alicia Vikander) and the two have an instant connection and end up falling in love. The two then live together in isolation on the lighthouse island and try to start a family which results in a devastating miscarriage. As the couple tries to recover from the tragedy, a small lifeboat washes to shore containing a dead man and a crying infant child. Tom and Isabel have to decide what to do with the baby. Do they report it and find the child’s rightful mother or do they hide the body and raise the child as their own? Whichever they choose, they must live with the consequences for the rest of their lives.

Recommendation - The Light Between Oceans

I personally thought that The Light Between Oceans was a disappointment. I thought there was a lot of interesting and compelling material based on the premise and trailer but the movie did not deliver. I thought the acting in the film was fantastic. Both Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander gave great performances but I did not buy into their chemistry together as quickly as the movie progressed their relationship. The acting and the premise were really the best things of this movie, the execution of the premise was poor and resulted in a boring movie.

I would not recommend adding this movie to your home video collection. As for renting it? I think there are far better movies to spend your money on, so only rent this one if you are incredibly bored.

Which movie is your favorite?
