Much like the Arrowverse, The Flash goes back into the past, which leads to both Flashpoint and the resetting of the DCU. First things first: the press screenings consisted of an end credit scene. It is entirely possible that there is a mid-credit scene but these were not in the press screenings. From talking to friends that saw earlier screenings, there were things at the end of the film that were not in those earlier…"The Flash: Dude, Where’s My Batman?"
Jackie Brown, which gave new life to Pam Grier and Robert Forster’s careers, marks the 25th anniversary of its theatrical release in 1997.

The gist of the film is that Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) is a flight attendant who is smuggling money for Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson) and authorities catch her in action. But before that…"Jackie Brown Marks 25th Anniversary"

Through eight episodes, we’re watching things play out on several fronts: a small Virginia mining town, the DEA, Purdue Pharma, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Western District of Virginia. It is…"Dopesick Is A Must-Watch Limited Series"
Dopesick actor Michael Keaton discussed massive inequity after winning for Male Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series. Michael Keaton started off humorous after running back from the restroom. If you’ve ever been to the Barker Hanger for an awards show, the restrooms are set up in outside trailers. It’s not ideal but it is what it is. Anyway, Keaton got political in his speech but he was breaking down by the end. If…"Michael Keaton talks Massive Inequity"
Adam McKay’s The Other Guys, starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, is a genius parody of the buddy cop action comedy genre. If you haven’t watched the film yet, there is a post-credits scene. After watching Don’t Look Up earlier this month, I’ve been in a mood to rewatch Adam McKay’s earlier work. The Other Guys is one of those films that serves as both a buddy cop action comedy and a commentary on the…"The Other Guys Is A Work Of Genius"
The Protégé, the new assassin thriller starring Maggie Q, is the latest film in the all-too-familiar genre arriving in theaters this weekend. This film is the newest installment in the assassin genre, which includes the Keanu Reeves-starring John Wick and on the comedic side, The Hitman’s Bodyguard franchise.

The Trial of the Chicago 7, the newest film from writer-director Aaron Sorkin, is one of the best pictures to grace the screen in 2020. Paramount knew they had an awards contender on their hands. With theaters closed and a pandemic also raging, the best decision was to unload the film on Netflix. Many months from now, this will prove to have been a key decision. Listen, people are not going back to theaters in…"The Trial of the Chicago 7 Is A Masterpiece"
Whether or not you say his name three times, Tim Burton’s ghost movie Beetlejuice makes an arrival onto 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. The film received an Oscar nomination for Best Makeup. Meanwhile, the American Film Institute would honor the film with a slot on their top 100 comedies in 2000. Beetlejuice includes the same bonus content as previous Blu-ray releases. This is another lost opportunity when it comes to adding new bonus content. There certainly…"Beetlejuice Arrives on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray"
