Helen Mirren

The Criterion Shelf: Bad Vacations

As an antidote to our pandemic wanderlust, The Criterion Channel has put together a list of films meant to remind us that going somewhere isn’t always a good thing.

The Good Liar Review

Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen elevate Bill Condon's literary thriller The Good Liar, based on the novel by Nicholas Searle.

Hobbs & Shaw Review

Easily the funniest film in the action-packed Fast & Furious universe, Hobbs & Shaw opens up new roads for this spin-off franchise to travel down.

Anna Review

Is Anna a return to form for its troubled director – or frivolous and forgettable like his more recent work?

Eye In The Sky Review

While it doesn't quite reach Dr. Strangelove levels of absurdity, Eye in the Sky takes a tongue-in-cheek approach to modern drone warfare.

Trumbo Review

Can Trumbo rise above its award baiting, self-congratulatory Hollywood biopic trappings?

Red 2 Review

More or less a carbon copy of the first movie in terms of style, subtlety, tone, and general goodwill, Red 2 stills ekes out a marginally better review than its passable predecessor.
