The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard

Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard features solid chemistry between Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson but the sequel offers more of the same.

The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard

Admittedly, "not as cumbersome" is a low bar. But "HWB" clears it, coming in at a breezy 100 minutes, owning the overblown comic potential of the first film's painfully solemn flashbacks, and, surprise of surprises, interrogating toxic masculinity.

Nick Rogers, Midwest Film Journal

Doc Holliday

Any Western with Keach and Dunaway, with hints that Dunaway might not be the hero's first choice as a bedtime companion, is worth a look.

Roger Moore, Movie Nation


Godzilla vs. Kong

Whether you're a modern monster fan or a classic one, the included bonus features will delight as they explore not just the making of this film, but all the ones which came before. Frankly ... we're all winners here.

Douglas Davidson, Elements of Madness

Don't Be a Dick About It

There's a lot unspoken in the film...but it's not hard to see how much more difficult his life would be if he didn't have an open-hearted, non-judgmental brother on his side.
