River Wild is an unnecessary reimagining of the 1994 thriller, The River Wild, starring Meryl Streep, Kevin Bacon, and David Strathairn. I have to admit that the idea of a new film did pique my curiosity. At the end of the day, it doesn’t do anything better that the first film already did. No offense to Adam Brody, Leighton Meeston, or Taran Killam but they are not Meryl Streep, Kevin Bacon, and David Strathairn. It’s…"River Wild Is An Unnecessary Reimagining"

It’s a film that ought to be treated like that of a Marvel or Star Wars film. Go into it knowing very little…"Sundance 2020: Promising Young Woman"
After celebrating the biggest day of her life, one bride soon finds herself fighting for exactly that in horror comedy Ready Or Not. Families that play Hide and Seek together stay together. Probably. Maybe. Okay, I really don’t know. Now that I have your attention, let’s get on with the show. Anyway, the gist of Ready Or Not is that Grace (Samara Weaving) joins Alex Le Domas (Mark O’Brien) in marriage. We only cut to…"Ready Or Not: A F*cked Up Rich Family"
