Emmys 2018 QuickViews


One of the greatest award shows on its 70th year didn’t make us laugh as we wanted it to or either entertain us: the Emmys.   Colin Jost and Michael Che (Weekend Update on SNL) were the hosts this year, and let’s say their comedy bits together should’ve just stuck in New York at Studio 8H. The winners this year were unexpected surprises, especially Glenn Weiss’ proposal to his future wife after winning for directing the 90th Oscars telecast.   Even though there were some good...

Kidnap QuickViews


What happens when your kid goes missing, one word: Kidnap. Starring Halle Berry, this movie from start to finish takes you on a thrill ride and never stops. As a mother who doesn’t watch over her child gets abducted, it’s only a matter of time before he disappears forever… Or do they?

Even though it’s an adrenaline rush to enjoy in a movie theater, you’re ...
