Interceptor (2022)

Netflix action thriller Interceptor t is a movie that just needs to calm down for a second, take a breath and start over.  Matthew Reilly’s debut feature throws so much at you so fast that you feel overwhelmed in the first 10 minutes and that is not to positive effect.  This is an action movie that takes […]

Death on the Nile (1978)

Perhaps one of the greatest faults of Agatha Christie is that while her legendary mysteries were crafted with clockwork precision, she was not as adept at writing characters.  The players were always types – the secretary, the dowager, the gum shoe – but they were merely chess pieces to be moved around.  And this, perhaps, […]
