Movie Review: The Forgiven

THE FORGIVEN, written and directed by John Michael McDonagh (CALVARY), is flying under the radar despite having an all star cast of Jessica Chastain, Ralph Fiennes, and Matt Smith. And I am pretty sure I know why. Despite an attempt to satirically skewer the 1%, colonialism, and the appalling way the West views Arab culture,… Continue reading Movie Review: The Forgiven

Top Gun Maverick Review and Interview with Glen Powell and Greg Tarzan Davis

TV Review: Gentleman Jack Season 2

It's hard to believe it's been three years since we last saw the incredible Suranne Jones don the top hat and curls of Anne Lister, aka "Gentleman Jack", in my favorite period drama on TV.

THE SECRETS OF DUMBLEDORE, the next edition in the FANTASTIC BEASTS series, is finally being released this weekend following another round of controversy during the film's production. The FANTASTIC BEASTS series is the most "cursed" film in Hollywood these days, with lead roles being recast due to cast member controversies, and now actor Ezra Miller facing… Continue reading Movie Review: Fantastic Beasts- The Secrets of Dumbledore
