Hustlers Five Minute Review (Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Cardi B)


In this Five Minute Review, we discuss the movie Hustlers! Inspired by true events that were reported on by New-York-Magazine-writer Jessica Pressler, this is the story of exotic dancers that discover a way to turn the tables on their wealthy Wall Street clients. Starring Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B, Julia Stiles, and Lili Reinhart, and written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, this is a movie that people may be talking about for a long time.

Review: True Believer (1989)

"Someone got away with murder...until now!"

1989's True Believer has arrived on Blu-ray from Mill Creek Entertainment as part of their growing "Retro VHS" title library, which we love for combining high definition transfers with an old school aesthetic. Prior to screening this title for the purposes of this review, I had never seen the movie, which is a legal drama starring James Woods as Eddie Dodd, a down-on-his-luck civil liberties lawyer and Robert Downey Jr. as his young, idealistic protege. Someone has been murdered, and the person who has sat behind bars for the crime claims he didn't do it. When Woods begins to investigate the case, he discovers a cover-up that goes higher than he could have possibly imagined.
