Let me quickly recommend some lesser known labor films worth your attention.
Here are ten films that make a compelling case for why Hollywood has come down not only with severe sequelitis, but remake-itis as well.
1913 Massacre is a touching documentary that revisits the tragic events that took place in the copper mining town of Calumet in the northern tip of Michigan on Christmas Eve 1913.
"Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" is visually stunning, unfolding professionally within a familiar bio-pic template.
I really liked this movie, mainly because of its unusual characters based on actual historical figures.
"The Book Thief" is not a happy movie. It's narrated by Death, though he's a trifle friendlier than usually depicted.
As superhero flicks go, this one is still pretty standard fare for the casual viewer, but that doesn't mean it's not enjoyable.
Dallas Buyers Club is an uplifting morality tale that's about as good as the art of cinema gets.
The movies that follow are fantasies based on real, immediate, contemporary threats.
