Jonathan Majors is on a role as the actor made his return to Sundance with a strong performance in the very intense Magazine Dreams. I’m not kidding around when it comes to the intensity of the film. It is not an easy film to watch. There are many times when the lead character loses his temper. At the same time, there are instances where it appears that his temper gets the rest of him, only…"Magazine Dreams – Sundance 2023"
Till is not an easy film to watch but this country still has a horrible problem with racism some 65 years after Emmett Till’s murder.

Hillbilly Elegy launches on Netflix this fall as an awards contender for Amy Adams and Glenn Close but their performances cannot save the film. I’m a Kentucky native so naturally, I like that there were scenes set in Jackson, Kentucky. Having a film directed by Ron Howard and starring Amy Adams and Glenn Close is enough to pique my interest. But there needs to be more here in order to elevate the film and take…"Hillbilly Elegy: Oscar Bait Falls Short"
Chris Evans leads a cast of Mossad operatives in The Red Sea Diving Resort as they work to rescue Ethiopian Jews and bring them to Israel. I would imagine that more people know the story behind Operation Moses or Operation Solomon more so than Operation Brothers. Regardless, this film is a good one to watch as things play out on screen.
