A Haunting in Venice

The spirits within push this Branagh mystery franchise higher. Kenneth Branagh’s take on Hercule Poirot has transitioned from an Agatha Christie character to an iconic movie name, and I’m not insulting literature in any way. Three films have made and… Read More ›

The Equalizer 3

Denzel Washington gives his hero a jumpstart in this likable (if sometimes gruesome) threequel. I discovered a word called “triaphilia,” which is the superstition that bad things come in threes. According to an article I came across, scientists would determine… Read More ›


Noisy Liam Neeson movie should have its driver’s license revoked. Although “Retribution” is the American remake of a Spanish film called “El desconocido,” I still think it wants to go for “Speed,” which had a bomb on a bus that… Read More ›

A Thousand and One

This Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner features a mother and son story like no other. “A Thousand and One” is a near perfect movie about how a parent from a bad background can give her child a better background. It’s… Read More ›
