Rachel Weisz Interview

"Oscar or no Oscar, I’m just happy she has her BAFTA for such a delicious role, and that more people than ever have hopped on the Weisz train!" -Manny

"In my eyes she stole the movie from Colman and Stone (and Hoult almost stole it from everyone else). She's the Celeste Holm and he's the George Sanders of The Favourite" - Pawel

Review: Breaking In

by Chris Feil

Twist a tried-and-true subgenre like the home invasion movie with just the slightest bit of invention and we’re intrigued - like say, the homeowners are the one who have to do the invading. Add in relatable context for emotional investment - motherly instincts, forging one’s own family unit after estrangement, female badassery. Sign up a dependable actress like Gabrielle Union and you have a formula for easy popcorn thrills and a rewarding opportunity for an underutilized actress to take center stage.

How has Hollywood not yet realized that Union is a star, and one we want to watch take revenge on a slew of bad guys with her poise and no-bullshit wit? Thank you, I'll have five. But Breaking In is only half of that movie.
