Kings Trailer - Halle Berry

Last year, racial tension was tackled in the 1960s-set drama Detroit as riots unfolded in the Michigan city, sparking a confrontation between citizens and the law during a time of great turmoil. Now, a new drama takes us to the Los Angeles riots in 1992.

Kings tells the story of Millie (Halle Berry), a single mother with eight children, and some of them aren’t even her own. But she takes it upon herself to give them the best home that she can, even if it brings a little craziness into her neighborhood and drives her next door neighbor Obie (Daniel Craig) a little crazy. But there’s turmoil on the horizon after the Rodney King beating trial pushes racial tension to its breaking point, seemingly putting Millie and her family in danger out on the streets. Read More »

The Looming tower review

Before The Looming Tower even begins, you know where it’s going to end. Yet that doesn’t make the series any less engrossing, or addictive.

Based on Lawrence Wright’s Pulitzer-winning book, The Looming Tower is the story of how we ended up here – seemingly trapped in wars with no end in sight. It is the story of the individuals who tried, and failed, to prevent the events that would ultimately lead to 9/11. And it unfolds with all the heart-pounding intensity of a potboiler thriller. The end result is something that may ultimately prove to be the first truly great new TV series of 2018.
