Gemini Man [2019] ★★½

Plot-wise, “Gemini Man” isn’t groundbreaking by any means, but if you’re going to see it, do it for the sake of the highly advanced technological visuals. This is one of the few 3D movies that made me feel completely immersed in its world. It also helps that it […]

I don’t know how I missed out on this gem of a movie upon its release, but now that I’ve seen it, I cannot but recommend it, especially if you’re a fan of The Beatles. “Yesterday”, written by Richard Curtis and directed with a keen eye for detail […]

Hustlers [2019] ★★★

Believe the hype: Jennifer Lopez is sensational in “Hustlers”, playing the leader of a former strip club employees who got their revenge on their Wall Street clients following the crash of 2008. How and why? You’ll have to see for yourself. But I will say that I walked […]
