    TCRPN : To See Or Not To See "The Little Things" Movie Review

    TCRPN : To See Or Not To See "The Little Things" Movie Review

    The Little Things is a 2021 American neo-noir crime thriller film written and directed by John Lee Hancock and produced by Hancock and Mark Johnson. Set in 1990 Los Angeles, the film follows two detectives (Denzel Washington and Rami Malek) who investigate a string of murders, which lead them to a strange loner who may be the culprit (Jared Leto). The film also stars Chris Bauer, Michael Hyatt, Terry Kinney, and Natalie Morales.

    The Little Things was released in the United States on January 29, 2021, by Warner Bros. Pictures, as well as a month-long simultaneous release on the HBO Max streaming service. The film received mixed reviews from critics, who praised the performances, direction, and atmosphere but noted the film as familiar and criticized the screenplay, with some comparing it unfavorably to the 1995 film Seven. For his performance, Leto received Best Supporting Actor nominations at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards.

    TCRPN : Sit and Lit "What Unites Us by Dan Rather" Book Review

    TCRPN : Sit and Lit "What Unites Us by Dan Rather" Book Review

    We read "What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism" by Dan Rather. With a fundamental sense of hope, "What Unites Us" is the book to inspire conversation and listening, and to remind us all how we are, finally, one. At a moment of crisis over our national identity, venerated journalist Dan Rather has emerged as a voice of reason and integrity, reflecting on—and writing passionately about—what it means to be an American. Now, with this collection of original essays, he reminds us of the principles upon which the United States was founded. Looking at the freedoms that define us, from the vote to the press; the values that have transformed us, from empathy to inclusion to service; the institutions that sustain us, such as public education; and the traits that helped form our young country, such as the audacity to take on daunting challenges in science and medicine, Rather brings to bear his decades of experience on the frontlines of the world’s biggest stories. As a living witness to historical change, he offers up an intimate view of history, tracing where we have been in order to help us chart a way forward and heal our bitter divisions.

    TCRPN : To See Or Not To See - "The Mandalorian" Seasons 1 + 2 Review

    TCRPN : To See Or Not To See - "The Mandalorian" Seasons 1 + 2 Review

    The Mandalorian is an American space Western television series created by Jon Favreau for the streaming service Disney+. It is the first live-action series in the Star Wars franchise, beginning five years after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983). It stars Pedro Pascal as the title character, a lone bounty hunter who goes on the run after being hired to retrieve "The Child".

    Star Wars creator George Lucas began development on a live-action Star Wars television series by 2009, but the project was deemed too expensive to produce. After he sold Lucasfilm to Disney in October 2012, work on a new Star Wars series began for Disney+. Favreau signed on in March 2018, serving as writer and showrunner. He executive produces alongside Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. The series' title was announced in October 2018 with the start of filming at Manhattan Beach Studios in California. Visual effects company Industrial Light & Magic developed the StageCraft technology for the series, using virtual sets and a 360-degree video wall to create the series' environments. This has since been adopted by other film and television productions.

Informative to the 3rd Degree

First things first! The intro! Love,love,love the intro and looked forward to it on each episode I tuned into! Also the information being shared gives a clueless person so much insight. So I definitely recommend! Also it was refreshing to hear conversation with individuals not talking over one another. Keep doing what you’re doing!
