‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’ Review: An Epic, Entirely Different Film

The fact this film even exists in the first place is impressive, but that it is arguably the best installment of its series is all the more remarkable. “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” is the director’s cut of the 2017 theatrical version of the DC Comics team-up movie of the same name.

This film will be noted as one of the best of 2021, but is going to receive nominations for the 2020 awards season. Make it make sense. “Judas and the Black Messiah” tells the story of criminal-turned-FBI informant William O’Neal (LaKeith Stanfield) and his betrayal of Black Panther Party chairman Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya). Jesse… Continue reading ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’ Review: Electric and Unmissable

‘The Little Things’ Review: Both the Good and Bad of Crime Thrillers

From the director of light-hearted family dramas like “The Blind Side” and “Saving Mr. Banks” comes… a dark noir centered on a series of unsolved murders. “The Little Things” stars Denzel Washington as a seasoned sheriff’s deputy who helps an LAPD detective (Rami Malek) solve a series of recent murders.
