The Gentlemen Review

On paper, “Matthew McConaughey as a weed kingpin in London” should be such an easy sell. McConaughey has enjoyed a variety of roles that trade on his easy-going charm in the last few years, you’d expect that concept to give him a lot of latitude to play both into andContinue Reading

Dolittle Review

It’s a bad sign when a movie has been in production for two years, including heavy reshoots, rewrites, and post-production retooling.
