GAMING REVIEW: ‘Batman: The Enemy Within’ – ‘Same Stitch’

Warning: Spoilers for “Same Stitch,” as well as previous episodes of “Batman: The Telltale Series” follow.

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Racer and the Jailbird (Le Fidèle)’ is a sleek, gritty, wildly romantic thriller

Back in 2013, I was treated to perhaps the most effective romance film I had ever seen in the French film and Cannes Palme d’Or winner “Blue is the Warmest Color.” The romantic epic, while controversial for its explicit lesbian sex scenes and alleged abusive behavior from director Abdellatif Kechiche, the end result is perhaps the […]

The pairing of director Jason Reitman, writer Diablo Cody and star Charlize Theron made for perhaps one of […]
