While Zero Dark Thirty is about the manhunt for terrorist Osama bin Laden, the film has not aged particularly well on its 10th anniversary. In early 2013, I would have said that this film was one of the best films of 2012. But now, I’m not so sure especially with what The Report had to say about it.

Maybe it’s because I haven’t been out of my apartment much for the past few months but I really needed this film. Here’s how much attention this film had: I did not look at my clock once! Nor did my cell phone bother to capture my attention…"Yes Day: Say Yes To This Family Comedy!"
Resistance tells the true story of how actor Marcel Marceau ended up joining the French Resistance and saved children during World War 2. The film only focuses on this portion of the famous mime’s life. Years later, he would become the person who recited the only spoken word in Mel Brook’s Silent Movie. Yet this isn’t a film that focuses on his life as a performer. Born Marcel Mangel (Jesse Eisenberg), he turned to a…"Resistance Tells Marcel Marceau’s Story"
