Posted: November 27, 2019 at 10:13 am   /   Movie Reviews

Sometimes, you think you have a movie figured out from the beginning. Sometimes, the movie tells you what happens halfway through. And sometimes, even when it tells you, it still pulls the rug out from underneath your feet. With murder mysteries, usually it ends up being a combination of all three. They’re fun for a […]

Movie Review: ‘Queen & Slim’ Starring Daniel Kaluuya​, Jodie Turner-Smith​

Posted: November 27, 2019 at 10:06 am   /   Movie Reviews

At a very basic level, Queen & Slim could best be described as a bad tinder date turned into a nightmare.
