The Art of Self-Defense

Masculinity. It’s what’s for dinner. 35-year old Casey (Jesse Eisenberg) is the cookie-cutter, mild-mannered accountant working in Corporate America that gets no respect and is a walking place mat that many step over.

Long Shot (2019)

So you’re telling me there’s a chance? A successful presidential term is only as successful as the people of who the man in charge surrounds himself with. For bumbling President Chambers (Bob Odenkirk), one of those people is Secretary of State Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron), a woman of immense poise, intellect, and beauty. Wanting to […]

The Best of Enemies (2019)

Isn’t It Romantic (2019)?

Can always use more of Vanessa Carlton’s A Thousand Miles. At an early age, a once-idealistic view on love existed in the heart of Natalie (Rebel Wilson). That is, until her mother informed her, rather bluntly, that the type of things seen in Pretty Woman, Sleepless in Seattle, any J. Lo movie, and the like don’t […]

Women, always the fairer and more intelligent sex. Welcome to Atlanta where the (sports) players play and the agents try to recruit their talents to their respective agencies.

Vice (2018)

Soft touch, that’s all. One Dick Cheney (Christian Bale) is a directionless young man in the early 1960’s. He’s squandering any potential he may have by being unruly and wasting his days getting drunk, leading to an expulsion from Yale University. This is the bottom for him, and the only reason it’s not rock is […]
