Film Review: The Tale Is the Kind of Film That Will Stay With You For Years To Come

I’ve never ridden a horse — at least, I don’t think I have. Growing up, we never had money, so when would I have had the chance to ride a horse? I’ve been in a saddle, but I think that was a pony, a docile animal walking slowly in a circle. There are no photos

Film Review: The Death of Stalin Turns World Politics Into a Carnival of Fools

It’s almost like a classic bar joke. A doctor, a minister, an aide, and a few others walk into Stalin’s chambers. Stalin looks pretty dead, stewing in his own filth on the floor. The men weep, albeit a little phonily – they all want a shot at the top spot, but oh no, Stalin is

Film Review: Bruce Willis is a “Good Guy With A Gun” in Eli Roth’s Tone-Deaf Death Wish Remake
