Movie Review: The Nest (2020)

Jude Law (“Captain Marvel”) plays an “entrepreneur” who moves his American family back to his home country of England so he can work for his old company in, The Nest, a deathly slog of a movie directed by Sean Durkin. This movie is so slow moving it practically runs in reverse, with an almost phobic…

Movie Review: Inheritance (2020)

New York is known for delivering many thrills. From the energy of the city’s entertainment to the exhilarating rush of traffic — the city (and its surrounding areas) are anything but dull.

The elaborately twisting plot where half the fun is not knowing and the other half finding out. Through the decades and across media from literature to film to television…

Movie Review: The Good Liar (2019)

In a phenomenal pairing, two powerhouses of the British stage join forces for a film which depicts the disastrous consequences that occur when their lives unexplainably intertwine.
