Movie Review: King of Thieves (2018)

It feels as if Michael Caine (“Going in Style”) has been making movies like King of Thieves for decades, movies in which is character is so, so old and so, so tired of it all. You’d be tired as well, if you had to work on movies like this. One last score, one last big…

Movie Review: The Legend of Tarzan (2016)

With The Legend of Tarzan, Tarzan meets the cast of “Planet of the Apes” and no one comes out looking good.

Movie Trailer: Cloud Atlas (2012)

The first full theatrical trailer for the Wachowskis’ (with Tom Tykwer) Cloud Atlas has arrived and as much as it dazzles it confuses.
