Hidden Figures (Blu-ray Review)

Hidden Figures is the kind of winning biopic I can easily champion.

The film does little to distance itself from other […]

‘Midnight Special’ Provides A Stunning Close Encounter With Complete Filmmaker Freedom (Movie Review)

There’s something pretty cool about seeing an indie director with a knack for human drama take on a genre film. Okay, so that applies to almost any newbie director handed the keys to a franchise, but how about one who has developed the story himself and is allowed by a studio to make such a […]
