Guy Ritchie thankfully returns to his crime genre roots in a messy, but amusing, romp in The Gentlemen.
Short Film Review – Dawn: Year Seven
Jay Reel’s Dawn: Year Seven, a short prequel to the writer/director’s 2003 feature, Dawn, does more telling than showing but has more heart than expected from a vampire film.
Indie Film Review: The Nightmare Gallery
Gene Blalock’s debut feature, The Nightmare Gallery, looks nice and establishes a unique tone but lacks in story and substance.

William Eubank’s new sci-fi/horror film, Underwater, is a surprisingly good January film with its claustrophobic feel and Alien-esque tone.
In Theaters Review: 1917
Writer/director Sam Mendes changes the game with his perfect technological marvel of a war drama in 1917.
Short Film Review: Italian Turtles
Vin Nucatola’s Italian Turtles is an amusing little short that spotlights the absurdity of trying to pitch an idea like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
In Theaters Review: The Grudge
The 2020 version of The Grudge boasts an impressive cast but fails at every conceivable level to scare, shock, or entertain.
