Clive Owen has played the brooding antihero before (see his Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated turn as Ernest Hemingway in Hemingway and Gellhorn).

Christian McBride is imposing in every sense of the word. Standing almost as tall as his instrument, the bass player, planted in the center of U Street’s Bohemian Caverns in between the other members of his trio, coolly controlled the entire room with nothing more than his hands. A centerpiece of the modern jazz world,…

Director and screenwriter David Ayer knows a thing or two about grit, as evidenced by the hard-hitting stories he crafted in End of Watch and Training Day.

Once midterm season rises and rears its ugly head, it is necessary to remind yourself that there is a world outside of Economics tests and Philosophy papers.

Every moviegoer is different—influenced by personal, cultural, and preferential biases—making it quite difficult for any one film to gain the approval of all who watch it. In fact, it seems safe to argue that no film has truly managed this feat, though one has come awfully close. The Shawshank Redemption, which celebrates the 20th anniversary…
