Film: American Ultra Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Kristin Stewart Directed By: Nima Nourizadeh There is something beautiful about two stoners in love, especially when they’re running for their lives from the CIA.

Movie Review: ‘The Raid 2’

Film: The Raid 2 Directed by: Gareth Evans Starring: Iko Uwais Bigger is not always better, but The Raid 2 is an exception. It’s two-and-a-half hours of gangs, deception, and over-the-top violence that pushes the limits of visceral filmmaking to the breaking point (then snaps it in two).  Picking up hours after the events of […]
