Review: ALLIED, In the Territory Between Tribute and Parody

Review: FURY Treads On Unsettled Ground

I found myself liking Fury almost against my best judgment, ignoring some of its overt flaws in favour of enjoying the ride. It might be because I'm a sucker for claustrophobic battle films. It may have been Das Boot...

FURY: Brad Pitt Battles Germans And Shia LaBeouf's Moustache In Trailer For David Ayer's Latest

Review: THE COUNSELOR, Deranged, Dazzling, And Diabolical

I was slack-jawed and spellbound while watching Cormac McCarthy's first original screenplay unfold on screen. Diabolically unpredictable and wildly discursive, problematic yet bold, the story itself is not the thing: it's the characters and the words, and the twisted criminal...
