King's Man, The

The problem with The King’s Man isn’t that it’s a bad film (it isn’t) but an unnecessary one. To the extent that there was a worthwhile story to be told in this comic book-based universe, it was presented in Matthew Vaughn’s 2015 feature...

Quiet Place Part II, A

Serenity

For a while, it seems like Serenity is going to a be a fairly routine neo-noir thriller. That’s not necessarily a bad prospect with a scraggly-looking Matthew McConaughey playing a down-on-his-luck free-spirit and a blond Anne Hathaway as the...
