‘A Bigger Splash’ Review: Sex, Seduction, Rock ‘N’ Roll & Naked Stars – Do We Have Your Attention?
Seeing the sexy and gorgeously shot new film A Bigger Splash is like taking a vacation to Italy — that is if your idea of a vacation involves a little rock ‘n’ roll, steamy couplings and murder mixed in with the scenery.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ Review: It’s Chris Evans Vs. Robert Downey Jr As Avengers Take Sides
It’s superhero vs, superhero in the latest Marvel concoction, Captain America: Civil War — an apt title, though “Avengers” should be in there somewhere. The film from directors Anthony and Joe Russo is another comic book all-star gathering, even including none other than Spider-Man, who is borrowed from Sony’s top franchise for this fun effort. Although, as I say in my video review (click the link above to watch), I don’t think Civil War quite soars to the heights of the… Read
