Anthropoid: The Czech Pearl Harbor (Movie Review)

The story behind operation Anthropoid has become synonymous with the history of WWII-based Czechoslovakia to the point of having several films made about it.

‘Snow White’ Goes Dark

Given the visual wonderment seen throughout this darker take on the Snow White fairy tale, it is too bad there is not more to praise in other regards.  Snow White and the Huntsman is a fairly empty film that has plenty to show off on the outside, given the high budget and imaginations at work […]
