Movie Review -- 'The Gentlemen' is Director Guy Ritchie Doing What He Does Best

Last January, Matthew McConaughey graced us with Serenity, one of the most baffling, bizarre, and terrible movies I’ve ever seen. Last summer, Guy Ritchie also bowed in with a bad movie. He didn’t helm the live-action Aladdin, rather he beached it. Given that we’re well into the season of theatrical releases that prioritize action and style over more substantive films, I have to admit I didn’t have high hopes for The Gentlemen.

Movie Review -- 'Serenity' is Another Expected January Movie Flop

It’s the early months of the 2019 year, which means all the good movies that came out months ago are lining up for awards. Which means the movies coming out in theaters… generally speaking, aren’t really at risk of missing out. But even with this knowledge, nothing could really prepare me for Serenity.

While McConaughey fully commits to the role, gaining weight, putting on fake teeth and...

We spend endless amounts of time searching, “pinning,” and longing for material aspirations. The immaculate home paired with the perfect organization system, the trendy hair-do along with most desirable wardrobe to match, how to color coordinate EVERYTHING (literally). A (seemingly) never-ending amount of information is available for any whim of possibility. It is more than an understatement to say it is easy to become wrapped up in our world wide web. If we are honest, we would also say we spend far too much time there. If we spent as much time cultivating the best...
