Creed III changes it up from the previous films in the franchise by trying to move the franchise from out of Rocky Balboa’s shadow. At some point or another, the franchise needed to move out of Rocky’s shadow. With where Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) is at in his life right now, Sylvester Stallone’s presence would probably distract from the action. The younger Creed is now in the position of mentor, much like Rocky was…"Creed III Hits A Knock-Out Punch"

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, this film is just one huge commercial for Scott Lang’s upcoming memoir, Look Out For The Little Guy. It’s still unclear if Rudd is pulling our leg and writing a novel sequel to everyone’s favorite E.T. rip-off film, Mac and Me. We’ll know for sure…"Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Is An Epic Adventure"
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"

The Last Black Man in San Francisco might suffer at times with the film’s pacing but it is otherwise a beautiful ode to the Bay Area. Jimmie Fails (Jimmie Fails) has a dream. This dream is to take back what rightfully belongs to his family: A Victorian home in San Francisco. Jimmy’s grandfather is said to have built it himself in the 1940s. Even though a family currently resides in the house, this doesn’t stop…"The Last Black Man in San Francisco"
Taking place during Detroit in the 1980s, White Boy Rick tells the story it wants but only to an extent. The biggest thing that I felt could have been explored better were the unjust treatments towards Rick Wershe, Jr. (Richie Merritt). This is someone who became the youngest person to ever serve as an FBI informant. The fact that the FBI turned their backs on a deal is wildly upsetting. It isn’t unfair to say…"TIFF 2018: White Boy Rick"
