    Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard


    You know what you're in for when you fork over your hard-earned to see a sequel to a critically panned, but ultimately successful, violent, odd couple, action-comedy. More of the same.

    And Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard is exactly that. Except it has way more of Salma Hayek as Darius Kincaid's foul-mouthed, con-artist wife, Sonia - which is a good thing. And way more laughs in the interactions between the three leads, who are all more than capable and have good comic…

    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It


    If I wanted to watch a police procedural thriller masquerading as a horror movie, I'd have gone to see Spiral again!

    - Basements below ground level do not flood until it is narratively necessary for them to do so.
    - Alligators are all at least 9 feet long.
    - If any alligators smaller than 9 feet long do exist, they most certainly do not venture into basements where their smaller size would enable them to crawl under…

  • Tenet




    For several months now, Tenet has been proclaimed as the film which might just save the movie theatre industry. A 200 million dollar, original property blockbuster, written and directed by one of the most reliable names in Hollywood, Christopher Nolan. The hopes were that Nolan might deliver a film that was so incredible – so quintessential – to see on the big screen that it would tempt people from their homes, with their huge televisions…
