When it comes to Robert Eggers, you either love his films or you don’t but he’s outdone himself with the new Viking film, The Northman. You might think you’ve seen a Viking film but you’ve never seen anything like The Northman. Robert Eggers has a way with cinematic language unlike any other filmmaker working today. The nonstop action films coming from the likes of Marvel and Lucasfilm might be spoiling us but this one is…"The Northman: Robert Eggers Does It Again"
Godzilla vs. Kong, the newest installment of Legendary’s Monsterverse, is now available for fans to take home and watch on physical media. This film more than makes up for 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters. There’s still an ample plot regarding the human characters but there’s more than enough battles between Godzilla and Kong to make up for it. In 2019, we saw the eco-terrorists wanting to wake up the titans in order to help…"Godzilla vs. Kong Roars Onto 4K UHD, Blu-ray, DVD"

I would subsequently learn that her mother is opera singer Marie Ewing. Ewing happens to be of a mixed racial…"Sundance 2021: Passing"
Long Shot, the hysterical film starring Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron, is now available to bring home on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital. When Long Shot was announced to premiere during the 2019 SXSW Film Festival, the film was immediately placed on my calendar. It didn’t matter what was screening against it because nothing was going to stop me from attending the comedy. Having the same Saturday night slot during SXSW as Blockers one year prior…"Long Shot now available on Blu-ray, DVD"
The Hummingbird Project is a pretty ambitious film and offers fine performances but the film as a whole falls pretty far short of expectations. A pair of New York cousins, Vincent Zaleski (Jesse Eisenberg) and Anton Zaleski (Alexander Skarsgård in unrecognizable form), have big dreams. This dream is building a straight fiber-optic cable line between Kansas and New Jersey. Mark Vega (Michael Mando) is their pick to run things. Despite the odds, the two aren’t going…"The Hummingbird Project aims high, falls short"
Premiering at the famed Paramount Theatre at SXSW, Long Shot is the most hysterical political romantic comedy in years. Brooklyn Advocate journalist Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) is the type of muckraker known for making trouble.

This is a journalist who is very outspoken in his beliefs especially when it comes to media…"SXSW 2019: Long Shot"
