'Rambo: Last Blood' review

John Rambo was a totem of my childhood and an institution that cast a large shadow over action cinema for decades. Over the course of four films, the character crystalised by Sylvester Stallone morphed from a tragic and affecting portrait of a casualty of the Vietnam War to a slice of fun ‘80s pulp pro-American propaganda (save the fourth entry where Rambo takes on the Burmesse junta).

'Hustlers' Review

The 2012 male stripper drama “Magic Mike” made women go crazy for Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey (who actually won an Independent Spirit Award for his performance). Now it’s the ladies’ turn to take center stage with “Hustlers”.
