What Men Want (2019) – Movie Review

I’m gonna be straight up here: I like watching Nancy Meyers’ What Women Want from time to time. A pre-meltdown Mel Gibson and an absolutely delightful Helen Hunt aided and abetted by a supporting cast which includes the likes of Ashley Johnson, Alan Alda, Judy Greer, and Bette Midler?

Arrival

Never has the term “thinking man’s science-fiction film” been more accurate than when describing Denis Villeneuve’s latest directorial effort, Arrival.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

There’s a reason why a character like Jack Reacher – either in the films or in Lee Childs’ novels – speaks to us. Here’s a man who’s free from all obligations, a former member of the Army Military Police Corps who wants to see the country he spent so much time defending, wanting to be […]
