Director Brian Kirk (Game of Thrones) is known for television so he made an interesting choice with his feature film directorial debut and the outcome eludes to his past experiences.  In 2019, he brought 21 Bridges, a police "procedural" starring Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) to theaters.  The intense drama chronicles a polic...

From the time Edward Norton (Primal Fear) first read Jonathan Lethem's 1999 novel, Motherless Brooklyn, he knew he wanted to adapt it into a feature film.  However, it would be another nineteen years before the film actually got made.  With Norton starring in, writing and directing the film, it truly became a labor of love for him. H... Read More

It's hard to believe that it was 25 years ago when we were first introduced to Mike Lowrey (Will Smith; Men in Black) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence; Martin), two Miami police detectives that didn't generally do things "by the book".  Lowrey was the wild guy who drove a Porsche and lived in a spacious apartment overlooking the w...
