Movie Review: Winchester (2018)

In 1906, in San Jose, California, an impressive, intimidating, and haunting construction project is underway — in fact, this never-ending project is worked on 24 hours a day.

Movie Trailer: Red 2 (2013)

You just can’t keep old people down anymore. Returning to their actiony, murderous ways from “Red,” is Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and John Malkovich in Summit Entertainment’s Red 2. This time the retired assassins — with Willis’ lady in tow (Mary-Louise Parker) — take their skills across the pond to such locales as London, Paris…
