Movie Review: SPIRIT UNTAMED Starring Isabela Merced, Jake Gyllenhaal, Marsai Martin

Posted: June 4, 2021 at 9:35 am   /   Film, Movie Reviews

Spirit: Untamed looks like something you would find on a kids television channel – which is to say young ones will probably enjoy it perfectly fine, but it is nothing beyond forgettable and disappointing for anyone over 10 or so.

Movie Review: A QUIET PLACE PART II Starring Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Cillian Murphy

Movie Review: THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW Starring Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, Gary Oldman

If it feels like Joe Wright’s new psychological thriller that just hit Netflix is a sort of spiritual successor to Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, that’s because it certainly is trying to be. To their credit, the filmmakers even have Hitch’s beloved film playing on a television during the opening scene of the film. Why tip-toe […]
