The film–over a decade in the making–is the epic tale about Hollywood that we’ve been waiting for and it’s absolutely awesome. There’s…"Babylon: A Love Letter to 20s and 30s Cinema"
On paper, Amsterdam has the right pedigree to be a serious Oscar contender but the film has a David O. Russell problem. Amsterdam is described as “a fascinating and richly intricate tale that brilliantly weaves historical fact with fiction for a timely, cinematic experience.” It is a “crime epic about three close friends who find themselves at the center of one of the most shocking secret plots in American history.” 20th Century Studios released both…"Amsterdam Has A David O. Russell Problem – Oscars Watch"
The Wolf of Wall Street, starring Leonardio DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, and Margot Robbie, is an epic visual storytelling masterpiece from Martin Scorsese. Martin Scorsese and masterpiece are words that seem to go together every few years. Looking back on its 8th anniversary, this film is no exception. With the filmmaker supervising a new film transfer, the picture has never been more beautiful. Both Scorsese and DiCaprio have a history so there’s a shorthand in their…"The Wolf of Wall Street: An Epic Masterpiece"

Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is now available for fans to buy or rent on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital. Given that Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn was the best thing in DC’s Suicide Squad, it was only natural that the character would be given a spin-off.

Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron) had her own frustrating experiences with Ailes…"Bombshell Features A Powerhouse Ensemble"
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood takes us back to 1969 in a way that only Quentin Tarantino can do so, while completely wasting Margot Robbie. After viewing the film, I can safely say that Inglorious Basterds remains my favorite Quentin Tarantino film. While the third act of Hollywood is entertaining, I really wish I could say more about the rest of the film. For the large majority, we’re viewing the film through actor Rick…"Once Upon a Time in Hollywood: I Have Words"
Mary Queen of Scots may span a few years of the queen’s life but actress Saoirse Ronan delivers a commanding performance as Scottish royalty. Saiorse Ronan is proving to be an unstoppable force as an actress. Her role as the late Scottish Queen proves to be no exception. While her performance is great, my only beef with the film is how they don’t really bother aging the queen in appearance. Mary arrives back in Scotland…"Mary Queen of Scots: Fit For A Queen"
