Review: ‘White Boy Rick’ a tragic, tender tale of legendary teen drug kingpin

Review: It’s fun to watch Jennifer Garner’s return to action, but ‘Peppermint’ is no ‘Alias’

“Searching” works both as a smart and fascinating thriller and a wonderfully creative way of telling the tale.


Review: ‘Operation Finale’ is a color-by-numbers post-WWII political thriller

Review: It’s a mystery why ‘Papillon’ remake was made

“Papillon,” a remake of the 1973 film about Devil’s Island inmate Henri “Papillon” Charriere, could be described as a prison drama, but it’s probably just as accurate to call the …
