Review: MARK FELT: THE MAN HOW BROUGHT DOWN THE WHITE HOUSE

By Renee’ Collins

Rating: 4.5 (Out of 5 Reels)

The story of Mark Felt (Liam Neeson), who under the name “Deep Throat” helped journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein uncover the Watergate scandal in 1974 (IMDB).

Neeson is spectacular in his role as Felt. It is hard to believe that one or two persons, namely Edgar Hoover, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and, his deputy director, Felt could hold so much power over the United States government. Hoover had dirt on everyone in Washington and used it to keep his power. Read more »

Reviews: THE SNOWMAN

By Renee’ C.

Rating: 1 (Out of 5 Reels)

Detective Harry Hole (Michael Fassbender) investigates the disappearance of a woman whose pink scarf is found wrapped around an ominous-looking snowman (IMDB).

I was cautiously optimistic about seeing this film because I have enjoyed roles Fassbender has previously portrayed. Unfortunately, his acting talents could not save this poorly written and made film. This film is slow, boring and barely suspenseful. Fassbender does what he can with the role but the choppiness of the writing and poor editing makes this film feel disjointed. Read more »
