Welcome to another installment from Brady Riann, Moviefone's teenage correspondent, where you'll get reviews and insights into the world of film -- all from a teenage perspective.

Potter verses Twilight. How many times has this been debated? I'm a fan of both, so it's hard to pick one franchise.
There are many reasons why Caspian is a better sequel than Azkaban, and three of those are Dinklage, Balin and Neeson.
Not only did Ebert really love movies, but he loved life. And that's why I love Roger Ebert.
As Alexander Nifong's character Craig makes a surprising decision, it begs the audience to ask themselves, "What would you do?"
"2001: A Space Odyssey" is one of the greatest films of all time, and every teen should watch it.
How can we, who enjoy affluence and freedom of action, intervene in a rustic world of rough injustices that are usually inflicted offscreen? Should we intervene?
This short excerpt from Shola Lynch's highly anticipated feature-length documentary highlights the hateful messages and death threats that Angela Davis received after the Board of Regents of UCLA fired her for affiliation with the Communist Party and her unapologetic views.
As long as there is date night, audiences will continue to go to the Cineplex to see romantic comedies. I'll be there with my big gulp soda, popcorn and Snowcaps.
His friends from this "real" world will return in different guises, in this case when his hot-air balloon drifts into a tornado and lands him in full-color Oz, a place whose name he shares. Fate? Coincidence?

Zero Dark Thirty,
Argo is not my favorite film of the year. It didn't even make my best-of list. But it's a populist mainstream genre entry of uncommon craft and intelligence, rooted in character and narrative. In terms of the best representation of what 2012 had to offer, Argo is absolutely the movie of the year.
Why are the Academy members constantly playing it safe? I see films every year that blow most nominees out of the water but they're always unnoticed by the Academy.
Both Boal and Bigelow seem intent on shoving aside the true facts about torture's effectiveness. All Boal would offer when I queried him on the subject recently was the pallid response that the issue was "politically controversial, as you know."
She's poised. Mature. Focused. Transparent. You root for her to survive ungodly conditions that would destroy most adults. The perfect balance to this hardened, emotionally threadbare female lead is the very romantic Serge Kanyinda; he plays her savior.
Robert De Niro,
Oscar Best Actor,
Oscar Best Actor Performances,
Lists must be made, and so here are my 10 nominees for the greatest performance by a lead actor (OF ALL TIME!).
I probably don't have to debate this one. The witch by which all witches are judged. Scary and funny at the same time. Virtually every line a classic. And as my brother pointed out to me, she had to play two roles.
Zero Dark Thirty, in spite of the controversy about the efficacy of torture in tracking down Bin Laden, manages to be a very upbeat portrayal of human inventiveness within the government.
