    "As a long time Elle Fanning fan, I thought she delivered a breakout performance in her role in the film, Super 8. It was about a group of kids with a film camera during summer break, and she was the only girl. It demonstrated quite a train wreck. "

    "I like Trumbo a lot. Bryan Cranston is incredible and enjoyable to watch. He creates a very unique character that's both interesting and believable. I mean, it's based on a real person, so he didn't "invent" the character, but it's still very good. This true story is way better than many fictional ones. Truly excellent film-making here, deserves more praise than it gets. "
