Guy Ritchie and Jason Statham reunite for the first time since Revolver for Wrath of Man, an action thriller starring Statham as H, a shoot-first-ask-questions-later type who gets hired by a cash truck company to protect millions of dollars moving through Los Angeles.

Ritchie has had a career filled with ups and downs, having directed crime comedy hits such as Snatch and last year’s The Gentlemen, but he has also made some critical disappointments such as Swept Away and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

This is quite a unique project for a Ritchie movie. You can see Ritchie put…


Happy Star Wars Day, everyone! Every year on Star Wars Day, I publish an article surrounding this series of films from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. I’ve published fun facts articles in the past, and last year, I wrote a review of season 7 of The Clone Wars.

While the series premiere of The Bad Batch arrived on Disney+ today and I got to see it a few days early, I decided to save my thoughts for a review of season 1. …


Stefano Sollima directs Without Remorse, an action thriller that serves as a spin-off of the Jack Ryan films. The film stars Michael B. Jordan as John Clark, a US Navy SEAL whose wife is murdered, sending him down a dark path as he must find the people who did this and get his revenge.

This premise should sound very familiar to you, not because it’s an adaptation of a Tom Clancy novel, but because it’s a premise that’s been done to death. …


Test your might with the newest cinematic adaptation of the classic video game, Mortal Kombat. This fantasy action film from first-time director Simon McQuoid is Hollywood’s first attempt at an MK movie since 1997’s Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, widely considered a cinematic fatality.

Video game movies don’t have a glowing reputation, and neither do reboots of long-expired movie franchises. This film stars Lewis Tan as an original character named Cole Young, a former MMA champion with a mysterious dragon marking on his body.

Cole soon discovers that the marking is an invitation to fight in a tournament known as Mortal Kombat…


This Sunday, April 25, the Academy Awards will be playing on ABC. This year, they will be honoring the best movies from 2020 and the first two months of 2021.

As always, the most prestigious award is the Oscar for Best Picture, and this year, there are eight nominees for which will be awarded the best movie of 2020. So this is my ranking of the eight Best Picture nominees from the least best to the best best.

8. Mank

Renowned director David Fincher (Fight Club, The Social Network) tapped into something special with Mank, a biographical drama about an alcoholic…


When it comes to animated movies, we generally have a good idea of what to expect every year—Pixar will give us a movie that makes us cry, Disney will give us a princess movie, and the other studios will struggle to keep up. But every once in a while, we get an animated film that blows us out of the water.

That movie is The Mitchells vs. the Machines, an animated sci-fi comedy about the Mitchells family. …


The newest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes in the Disney+ original miniseries, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. This buddy cop action series stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan as Sam Wilson/Falcon and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier.

This series follows the mismatched duo as they must team up to take on a group of terrorists called the Flag Smashers. I am going to go episode by episode and give thoughts on each one with SPOILERS.

Episode 1: New World Order


The Vault has landed on demand and in select theaters. The heist film follows a crew of master thieves who plan to steal a legendary lost treasure buried in a vault underneath the Bank of Spain while the whole country watches the World Cup.

Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones, Hunger) co-stars in the film as Walter Moreland, the leader of this team of people trying to pull off the heist of a lifetime. I got the opportunity to speak with Liam about his role in the film and some of his past experiences. Here is the interview:

Superhero movies are everywhere these days. With the prevalence of Marvel and DC films, including Zack Snyder’s Justice League just last month, it seems that everyone wants to jump on the superhero cinema bandwagon. It was only a matter of time before Melissa McCarthy got hers.

Ben Falcone writes and directs the superhero comedy Thunder Force, yet another comedy film with a starring role tailor-made for his wife, Melissa McCarthy. This couple has given us movies such as Tammy, The Boss, and last year’s Superintelligence, so with a track record like this, you should lower your expectations.
