Ron’s Gone Wrong Movie Review

In this case, Barney voiced by Jack Dylan Grazer is an outsider for various reasons, most central to this is his oddball family.

Pig Movie Review

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings Movie Review

Shang-Chi… taps into a father and son dynamic and features a refreshing lack of romantic entanglements between its two leads. Shaun (Simu Liu) and Katy (Awkwafina) have good chemistry together, one that is buttressed by their friendship remaining platonic.

Respect Movie Review

Even those with only a passing knowledge will know the more grim details of her life and while this exploration mentions some of those elements, it’s more a celebration of her musical identity.

The men in her life are ...
