Game of Thrones Season 8 Official Trailer
'The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind' review
“Democracy is like imported cassava. It rots quickly.” This sentiment nods to the underlying decay that forms the poignant subtext of Chiwetel Ejiofor’s feature debut ‘The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind’.

'Alita: Battle Angel' review
What makes Alita so special? It’s the only real question I had going into Robert Rodriguez’s 'Alita: Battle Angel'.

'Cold Pursuit' review
So, Liam Neeson dug a deep hole for himself ahead of the release of his latest film ‘Cold Pursuit’.
