    The November Man

    The latest from former James Bond, Pierce Brosnan, “The November Man” marks his return to the spy thriller genre, but this is no dashing, romanticized spy we’re talking about- this is the real deal. Brosnan plays, aptly...

    Earlier this week, I assessed the films with big budgets and big names, but what of the independent film scene? The smaller, more intimate ones that might not have the famous actors, but make up for it...

  • GOTG 2
    Guardians of the Galaxy

    Like any sane person, I was a little dubious when Marvel announced that one of their next adaptations would be “Guardians of the Galaxy.” I mean, what is one to say of a film whose main characters include...
