Mank, directed by David Fincher, takes a look back at 1930s Hollywood through the eyes of Oscar-winning screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz. If there is one thing that Mank gets right, it’s Herman J. Mankiewicz being an alcoholic. Well, that and writing Citizen Kane. Oh, and the drama with Orson Welles (Tom Burke) over credit for writing the screenplay. This is where I must recommend Sydney Ladensohn Stern’s biography, The Brothers Mankiewicz. We know that Mank…"Mank: A Look Back At Classic Hollywood"

Monarch scientists Mark (Kyle Chandler) and Emma Russell (Vera Farmiga) split up as a result of the San Francisco incident. However, the 2014 incident inspired Emma to revisit the bio-sonar prototype that they previously destroyed. Emma’s plan…"Godzilla: King of the Monsters Is A Letdown"
Starring four of the funniest women on earth, Ghostbusters: Answer the Call honors the spirit of the 1984 classic film. While it would have been nice to have seen the likes of Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, and Winston Zeddemore pass the baton to a new generation, Harold Ramis’ death in 2014 would forever change the face of the franchise.
