Have you ever had a sworn enemy that you suddenly discover you have to work with on a project?  What if you had to risk your own life protecting that person?  Would you do it?  What would it take to motivate you to do it?  Would you be able to do it without wanting to kill them yourself?  What if it was for the greater good...

I was going to make a joke about "two Avengers walk onto an Indian reservation" but Wind River is no laughing matter. Based on a true story, it is a hard look at life on a reservation and the forgotten Native Americans who live there.  A true crime drama, there is more going on than meets the eye, offering up all ...

Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight) is known for writing and directing some gripping films.  His visuals are usually filled with grays and deeper colors which set a tone that permeates his aesthetic and draws the audience in.  He knows how to build a scene so it offers the viewer layers while contributing to the overall feel of his films....

We all feel pressure from our parents… get a good education, get a good job, get married, have a family, etc.  But for some, that pressure becomes even greater when religious beliefs are thrown into the mix.  For Kumail (Kumail Nanjiani; Silicon Valley), that is exactly the life he leads.  Unfortunately, that isn't th...

Spider-Man made his debut in Marvel comics 55 years ago as a sidekick to the protagonist. He was a lonely teen who, like most kids his age, suffered anxiety and inadequacy.  He became so popular there have been a number of comic books, merchandise, movies and television shows focused solely on him.  In more recent years, we have had the m...

From the minute we met Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson; Wedding Crashers) in Cars, we, as an audience, were enchanted.  He was the self-assured, confident race car with a little bit of cockiness thrown in - but hey, what else can you expect from the best.  When he loses his way and finds himself in a small town, he learns humilit...
