So here it is. For subscribers. You know what? We had a hell of a time watching it. Not because of any inherent qualities of the Continue Reading...

Chris Hemsworth leads a group of 12 soldiers as the first post-9/11 attack on the Taliban in Afganistan in this true(ish) story that surprised us more than a bit. I mean, sure, you got Michael Peña, Michael Shannon, William Fichtner, Saïd Taghmaoui, and strangely (that we wished we had seen more of him) Rob Riggle. And no question, this is Continue Reading...

A top-tier group of criminals. A no-rules broken cop and his loyal crew. The heist to end all heists. Sounds kinda like…Heat, right? But no Pacino or DeNiro here.
