Film Review: ‘Jason Bourne’ begins to show diminishing returns

I completely understand why the Bourne franchise needs star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass. Anyone who saw The Bourne Legacy clearly noticed what was lacking.

Film Review: “The Purge: Election Year” is only slightly less terrible than Donald Trump

I’ll be the first one to admit, The Purge: Election Year has an extraordinarily great marketing campaign. Tying the film in to the Donald Trump related “Make America Great Again” slogan by having the tagline for this one be “Keep America Great” is clever, timely, and worth praising.

Daniel Craig is more at ease with […]

Colin Trevorrow officially will direct ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’

After some speculation that just this announcement was headed our way, Lucasfilm has confirmed in a Press Release from D23 that a director has been chosen for Star Wars: Episode IX. The choice? Well, it’s the rumored pick who was initially up for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, none other than Colin Trevorrow. As I’ve […]
