Bloodshot review

Bloodshot Review — Are the Wildly Entertaining Vin Diesel and Sam Heughan Worth the Risk?

Bloodshot Review — Yes, I attended a packed theater full of huggy colleagues to see this comic book based action movie, but should you?

The Way Back Review

THE WAY BACK Review — Ben Affleck is Moving in This Surprising Double-Redemption Film

The Way Back review — Ben Affleck’s very personal film does’t go as expected. From the outside, the trailer or the score, you might get the impression that The Way Back is your typical redemption film, where a drunk with a heart of gold hits rock bottom, then has a religious/rehab epiphany and changes his…

Once Were Brothers

ONCE WERE BROTHERS Review — Robbie Robertson and The Band in an Electrifying and Edifying Music Documentary

Once Were Brothers review — the story of a rock group, not too different from many stories of rock groups, but a fascinating and at times heart-wrenching tale.
