  • Review: Mother! Delivers A Constant Flurry of WTF’s September 15, 2017

  • Eman’s Hot Take: Parents, DO NOT Take Your Kids To See “It”! September 11, 2017
    It is a movie that adults to this day will claim was the primary cause for their fear of clowns. If you’re an adult in your 30s-40s, then you probably fall into that category. You probably also saw “It” when you were a young child as well. The R ratings ... [Read More] The post […]

  • “Wetlands”: A Leading Man is Born September 11, 2017
    I have one primary takeaway after having seen the new movie “Wetlands”, opening in theaters on Friday, September 15.  Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (TV’s “Lost”, “Suicide Squad”) can carry a movie. Oh, veteran pros like Jennifer Ehle and Christopher McDonald are just fine here, too.  But it is the simmering beneath the ... [Read More] The post […]

  • Netflix’s ‘Burning Sands’ Explores Uncomfortable Themes No One Is Talking About September 7, 2017

  • Review: Crown Heights Delivers Justice To A Story of Injustice September 6, 2017
    Crown Heights The Good: Crown Heights’ biggest highlight is probably the story of Colin Warner itself. Based on a true story, Warner’s situation of being wrongfully accused of a crime he did not commit only begins to draw your interest. Within the story, we have almost two movies in one ...
