The Oscar-nominated In Bruges makes its arrival on 4K Ultra HD just a few months shy of the film’s 15th anniversary in early 2023. I was a few years late to discovering the work of writer-director Martin McDonagh. Going into this year’s reunion project, The Banshees of Inisherin, I’d yet to watch the film in which the trio worked together. However, I’ve now rectified it with this black comedy crime thriller, in which the city…"In Bruges Arrives on 4K Ultra HD"

Where that film is a documentary, the narrative feature goes full thriller, capturing all…"Thirteen Lives Is A Gripping Real-Life Thriller"

Robert Pattinson stars as The Dark Knight as Matt Reeves takes on The Batman in a new epic masterpiece to grace the big screen. Let’s start with the most important thing first. There is not a mid-credits scene. However, the film contains an end-credits tag. Pattinson crushes it in the role.

Minority Report might take place some fifty years after the film was shot but the film’s themes are still relevant almost twenty years later. This film marks the first collaboration between Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise. The film has audiences asking some important questions. What if we knew what was going to happen in the future? After you ask yourself the question, what if the person knowing this found out he was going to kill someone? …"Minority Report: Spielberg Tackles the Future"
Inspired by true events, Saving Mr. Banks is a film that takes us behind the scenes of how Mary Poppins came to the big screen. The art of filmmaking is a painstaking process. This is something I’ve learned not just through watching bonus features but reading biographies about classic Hollywood. On paper, there’s nothing inherently wrong with the film. It’s only when you dig deeper into the actual story where the film has its faults. …"Saving Mr. Banks Goes Behind The Scenes"
The problem with Artemis Fowl is the same problem that plagued Green Lantern in that the film tries to do way too much during its run time. There are films that deserve the ire of Green Lantern and Independence Day 2. Hell, for all the problems with Percy Jackson, Artemis Fowl deals with too much mythology to bring the books justice. Disney was right to send this film to the vault that is Disney+. I’m…"Artemis Fowl Tries To Do Too Much In 94 Minutes"

Circus and we’re introduced to all the characters moments into the film. It’s post-war Sarasota, Fla. when Captain Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) returns home to children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins). Things are much different from when the two children last saw their father. For…"Dumbo gets the Live-Action treatment"
A trio of recently widowed women in the city of Chicago follow in their husbands’ footsteps by coming together in Widows. The film has a few things going for it. It’s not just tackling the women coming together and forming a heist of their own a la Ocean’s Eight but there’s also some political commentary. The political commentary comes by way of how traditional Chicago politics are run. We see this in how the Mulligan family…"TIFF 2018: Widows"
