The world of Hollywood comedians is an interesting one. Comedians like Robin Williams, Eddie Murphy, and Whoopi Goldberg (to name a few) started in stand-up comedy. Those comedians turned out to be some of the best actors of their generation. In the following years, other comedians (i.e., Bill Burr, Andrew Santino, and Illiza Shlesinger) did the same …

‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ Movie Review

If you were to do a Family Feud-style survey and ask a hundred people who the greatest movie director of all time is, you undoubtedly would get Alfred Hitchcock’s name on the board. Steven Spielberg would be up there, possibly even Stanley Kubrick as well. I cannot say where he would place, but without much doubt, Martin …

Review: ‘Jackdaw’ is a moody, gangster-adjacent crime thriller

The gruff, broken leading man on a revenge rampage genre has had its fair share of ups and downs across film history. You’ve got the highlights with films like Shane Meadows’ grueling Dead Man’s Shoes come to mind, and then the lowlights where bland cliche reigns; any post-2010 Liam Neeson action flick fits the bill here. Jamie …
