Natasha Lyonne in ‘Russian Doll’: Living Embodiment of NYC’s East Village

I started watching Netflix‘s Russian Doll expecting another Groundhog Day story – well, it totally is, it’s even marketed as such – with Natasha Lyonne (who ‘s always funny and watchable no matter what she’s in) and found instead a show about the East Village in Downtown New York City.

The supporting cast is really the intriguing thing there, with Oscar Isaac […]

My Name Is John Wick… You Killed My Dog… Prepare To Die

Keanu Reeves is a hit or miss kind of actor for me. I can think of a handful of movies he was in that I like… the original Matrix, The Replacements, Point Break… the list is not long. He’s not an actor that will get me to go see a movie because he’s in it. […]
