Movie Review: Mine (2016)

Despite taking place largely in a single location, Fabio Guaglione and Fabio Resinaro’s film, Mine, manages to tell a varied story of life experiences, a story that touches on family history, personal regrets and misunderstandings, and even a subtle political critique of US militarism.

Movie Trailer: London Has Fallen (2016)

This fact has alerted the intelligence community in Hamburg…

Movie Review: White House Down (2013)

I suppose I could just copy and paste my review of “Olympus Has Fallen” from two months ago and it would suffice to fill this space as well as describe the latest installment of another film about an attack upon the residence of the President of the United States. I could, but there are certainly…
