New Releases: Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore – I head into this second sequel in the spinoff prequel of the Harry Potter franchise with a few mixed emotions.

New Releases: Red Notice – I will admit that there is really nothing super original about this art stealing action flick that is full of cliches and predictable exposition dialogue but that’s not the point. What is the point is the fantastic chemistry between the three stars of this film, Dwayne “The Rock”┬áJohnson, Ryan Reynolds …

New Releases: Eternals – It’s crazy to see, as we get closer to the reveal and origins of another super-powered team within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, some of the worst reviews that have come out of this franchise in its over ten year run. I have to say that I am totally skeptical of them …
