‘Anthropoid’ brings life to an important historical event

Anthropoid is another in the long line of feature films based on historic events that took place during World War II. Its title comes from Operation Anthropoid, the code-name for an Allied operation to assassinate Reinhard Heydrich, Hitler’s third-in-command. It is set in Czechoslovakia during the period from December of 1941 through May of 1942.

‘Jason Bourne’ is a return to the franchise’s high-octane origins

The Jason Bourne of movies bears little resemblance to the Jason Bourne of the Robert Ludlum trilogy that began in 1980 with The Bourne Identity. That’s not a bad thing. The changes were the best part of the first three film adaptations of the Ludlum novels and now with the reunification of Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass in the new Jason Bourne, the franchise is back in a big way.
