‘OK Orchestra’ Review: AJR has never been this strong

‘Deadly Illusions’ drags, fails to live up to its potential

his movie was so many things, and I’m not particularly convinced it did any of them well. It was full of tropes, predictability and was bogged down by its own writing and artistic decisions.

Justin Bieber’s ‘Justice:’ many features, same song

Repetition is not inherently a bad thing, but it begs to question why Bieber didn’t take the opportunity to branch out in subject matter.

I am simply here to judge Snyder’s new “Justice League” on its own merits and as its own movie.
