Review – Logan Lucky

Logan Lucky, directed by Steven Soderbergh, is a film that is full of so much character.

Review – Homesman

The Homesman

The Homesman, directed and starring Tommy Lee Jones is a western that feels true to its roots. This is a film that doesn’t shy away from the harsh realities of the time and is one that probably won’t leave you with the warmest of feelings at the end of it but is one that brilliantly brings you into the times and takes you on a journey across the lawless plains of America.
