Gemini Man

While the makers of Gemini Man may have had aspirations for this to begin a new sci-fi action franchise, the would-be series doesn’t get off to the most inspiring of starts. At its best, the movie feels like a superhero/spy movie hybrid with...

Nine Days

Edson Oda’s debut feature, Nine Days, is a pure allegory; the film works as an extended philosophical rumination but fails as a story. Although interesting in many aspects, Nine Days is as often frustrating as it is compelling, and the denou...

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
