‘Bullet Train’: Movie Review

I came to the theater to watch David Leitch’s Bullet Train; I saw Bullet Train; I liked Bullet Train. A lot. It is not a perfect movie by any stretch. However, it doesn’t claim to be either. But it does

‘Easter Sunday’: Movie Review

Family is everything, especially during the holidays. No, not just Christmas, Hanukkah, or Thanksgiving. Easter is just as important an event to bring families together. It is an oddly placed time of the year that Jay Chandrasekhar’s Easter Sunday comes
