Movie Review: Focus

Focus-2015-Movie

Focus stars Will Smith and Margo Robbie By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) I love a good caper film, and it's a shame that not that many get made.

TV Review: Better Call Saul

Saul

We review Better Call Saul! By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) I consider Breaking Bad one of the best television shows in existence.

What did we think of Taken 3? Read on! By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Action movies are a curious thing these days.

By Kimberly Gadette (doddleNEWS) When we first learn that Boyhood is a coming-of-age piece about a first grader named Mason (Ellar Coltrane), we might think: Haven't we seen this scenario a million times before?

TV Review: Agent Carter Now Is Not The End & Bridge And Tunnel

Agent Carter

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) When Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered in the fall of 2013, I felt that it was a bit lackluster but gave it the benefit of the doubt.

By Kimberly Gadette (doddleNEWS) It appears that the title "Unbroken" is an unsubstantiated claim. A claim that – akin to the hero's leaky life raft – can't hold water. Even with all Jolie's horses and all Jolie's men (i.e., screenwriters the Coen Bros. [True Grit, No Country for Old Men, … [Read more...]

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) In my The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies review, I called the final film a satisfying conclusion to an uneven film series.
