Rage Logan, Rage

And now for something completely different.

Scary Laughs

You Can Be Heroes

The latest collaboration between director Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg, Patriots Day, stands as not only a valuable tribute to the victims and heroes of the Boston Marathon bombings, but a solid, meaningful, gritty look at what it took to take down the Tsarnaev brothers.

Keeping It Reel

So, this wasn't the worst movie year ever, but it wasn't a particularly great one, either.

Slightly Off Base

Fences is very much a well renowned and well-rewarded play. As a movie, well, it still feels like a play.
