*NEW* THE SIEGE OF JADOTVILLE REVIEW *NEW*

Gripping, shocking and a bloody good watch! Irish Commandant Pat Quinlan (Jamie Dornan - Fifty Shades of Grey) leads a stand off with troops against French and Belgian Mercenaries in the Congo during the early 1960s.

A wonderfully acted emotionally packed drama. An uncle (Casey Affleck) is asked to take care of his teenage nephew (Lucas Hedges) after the boy's father (Kyle Chandler) dies.

I originally avoided this at the … Continue reading *NEW* MONEY MONSTER REVIEW *NEW*

Over-hyped drivel. Well, that’s what I thought I was going to say. Overrated, maybe? But as much as I tried to resist the crazy hype train, I still couldn’t help but fall for this highly watchable and entertaining romp. A jazz pianist (Ryan Gosling) falls for an aspiring actress (Emma Stone) in Los Angeles. The … Continue reading *NEW* LA LA LAND REVIEW *NEW*
