Fresh to a new school, Joanie Whitaker (Monroe Cline) is surprised when she is approached by classmates Anabel and Sharnae (Shelby Yardley and Juliana Destefano), who invite her to a party. While reluctant, Joanie attends and is introduced to Danny Kellog (Bret Green) by her new friends, who claim Danny works for a business that delivers expensive cameras to photographers around the world, with Anabel and Sharnae working for Danny as couriers. Eager for the chance to travel and make easy money, Joanie accepts the offer to join the business, with her first trip having her enjoy a trip to New York and starting a relationship with Danny's business partner Tucker (Cole Reinhardt).
Even eight years after the fact, one night still haunts 18 year old Natalie Weaver (Monroe Cline): the night her mother Annie (Crystal Allen) was arrested for the savage murders of Lucy and Frank Miller, a couple who had been boarding with the Weavers—and was ultimately sentenced to death row after Natalie testified against her in court. Now as a teenager, Natalie not only deals with being harassed by her classmates for being the daughter of a convicted killer, but is suffering from nightmares and bouts of sleepwalking with her mother's execution quickly approaching.
Road to Perdition came out back in 2002. I'm not sure why I didn't go watch it when it first came out. I think it may have had to do with all of the quality movies that were coming out around that time. Look back at the lineup, and you'll see a lot of classics in there.
There is no question that Henry Cavill is one of the games biggest actors today, and he shows little signs of slowing down. Ever since he first came on the scene with Showtime's The Tudors, it was pretty obvious this man was destined for bigger things. And that is precisely what has happened since the period drama.
In the second of two Instinct episodes, televised on CBS Sunday, August 11, 2019, we found Yale Psychology Professor and NYPD consultant Dr. Dylan Reinhart (Alan Cumming) and NYPD Det Lizzie Needham (Bojana Novakovic) working “to uncover why an Olympic-hopeful figure skater is killed while on the ice. Also, Det Ryan Stock’s (Travis Van Winkle) case heats up and lands him and Dylan in unusual circumstances and Julian Cousins (Naveen Andrews) comes to understand why an old acquaintance has returned to New York.”
In The Hustle, we find Penny Rust (Rebel Wilson) and Josephine Chesterfield (Anne Hathaway) playing their trade as scam artists and swindling naive men out of their money. While Penny doesn’t have rent money, Josephine comes from a different echelon of society, but they both set their sights on the same mark. Consequently, they team up to take the tech prodigy for everything he has. Does this narrative sound at all familiar?

Mindhunter is arguably one of Netflix’s best shows, and given this is the streaming service that brought viewers such compelling programs like House of Cards, Orange Is the New Black, and Black Mirror, that praise is no joke. Based on the book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, written by F.B.I agent John Douglas—this raw, gritty serial killer drama feels very reminiscent of such iconic serial killer films as Seven and Zodiac, which makes a lot of sense given how this is academy award-nominated director David Fincher's baby. But unlike those films, and other programs like it, Mindhunter showcases how the FBI became familiar with crazy, so it could better apprehend all the crazy out there that needed apprehending.
Inspired by Julia Verdin’s time volunteering at a runaway children’s shelter in Los Angeles, Lost Girls: Angie’s Story is a powerful story that revolves around the victims of sex trafficking.
This trilogy may be one of the most underrated series there is. Not only are these books amazing, and there are more books than movies right now. The books themselves are underrated because for when they are made, and even now, they have such an interesting topic that is still very prevalent to things going on today. I love how all the books relate to issues very current to the times.
Goodfellas and Casino are arguably two of the best gangster films of all time. These two are classics most people have on their list of greatest of all time. They set the bar so high that one would assume the days of these caliber films releasing is probably at an end. On the contrary, Netflix, the streaming giant home to over 100 million subscribers, has set its sights on Oscar gold, and to accomplish their ambitious goal, they're bringing in the right Wiseguys for the job. That is right, director Martin Scorsese, Joe Pesci, Al Pacino, and Robert De Niro are joining forces to bring audiences The Irishman this fall. This momentous occasion also marks the first collaboration between Scarface's Pacino and the Wolf of Wall Street Director. And it marks the return of Pesci who has been in retirement for some time. After years of resisting the infamous auteur's offers, he finally gave in for what one can only be described as destiny, given all the parties involved. All of these individuals have some serious street cred when it comes to these types of films, so odds are this one will most likely stick the landing. And from the looks of this latest glimpse into the dark corridors of organized crime and political corruption, all signs point to this master plan going off without a hitch.
