New Releases: Empire Of Light – Having just seen just one trailer for this, it feels like the perfect pairing to put acclaimed filmmaker Sam Mendes and Academy Award-winning actress Olivia Colman together so I am immediately excited for this one.

New Releases: Enola Holmes 2 – When Millie Bobby Brown starred in the titular role of the first film of this hopeful sleuthing franchise, I was really taken aback by how fun and exhilarating it all felt with some Deadpool-level constant fourth wall breaks that seemed to always work.

I …

New Releases: Memory – The set up for this week’s releases feels like a harbinger of doom because we have not one but two Liam Neeson movies this week in varying degrees with Blacklight landing on blu-ray and this new geriatric action flick and don’t worry, Liam calls them that too. The only good thing …
