Hounds of Love - Movie ReviewHorrifying.  Absolutely fucking horrifying.  And bloody, damn brilliant, too.  If the title, Hounds of Love, makes you think you are in for a romantic comedy then stop.   Breathe deeply.  This tale of kidnapping and torture is the furthest thing from a rom-com and, since there is a  ...

Girls Trip - Movie ReviewDirector Malcolm D.

The Big Sick - Movie ReviewReligion, family, politics, culture, life-threatening illness, forbidden romance (and so many other things) get the once-over in comedian Kumail Nanjiani’s The Big Sick, his real-life story that is as heart-breaking as it is funny, and preposterous as it is authentic.
