The GentlemenWhere have you been, Guy Ritchie? We’ve missed your language, your punch, your sleight of hand, and that self-referential swagger that defined your early days as a filmmaker.

Masterpiece: All Creatures Great & SmallCalling all vets!  There is a heartwarming calm at the center of All Creatures Great & Small, a family drama that is more about optimism than anything else.  It is a calm that is hard to explain in these trying times yet it exists and flourishes with each and every episode as lush, rolling...

Sky Sharks (2020)“Watch. Her entire body is going to get zombiefied . . . including her anus.”  A weird sentence to come out of the mouth of my wife as she sits next to me watching Sky Sharks, a German produced but English-friendly splatter and trashfest with tons of gratuitous nudity, but there it was, a nude  ...

Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the JediThis film would be the culmination for a generation of Star Wars fans, and we couldn’t have been better primed for it.
