‘Nine Lives’ Marks a Rare Ursula K. Le Guin Adaptation

From the author who frequently denied Hollywood comes a moon-based sci-fi cloning comedy. Yeah, another one.

Revisiting the Earthy Children’s Classic ‘The Secret Garden’

Taraji P. Henson Knows Exactly ‘What Men Want’ in New Trailer

Ali Davis has the gift that we all wish we had in this 2019 rom-com. 50% of the time you ask someone the age-old question “If you could have a superpower, what would it be?” mind reading is going to be their response. The other 50% are going to say flying. Those are statistics I […]
