The Americans
FX really struck gold with their Cold War spy drama The Americans After five incredible seasons, the series was picked up for a 6th, which the cable network announced would be the final one.  Few shows are given such a grand opportunity to plan out the end, the exit, and I'm so glad this one did. Incredible[...]

[rwp-review-recap id="0"] Red Sparrow has been compared to Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, but that entirely undersells Sparrow Where Tinker was droll and predictable, Sparrow actually carries along the thread of an interesting story to keep the audience engaged Clocking in at nearly two and a half hours, one thing the film is not is in a[...]

Tales of Suspense #100 cover by Marco Checchetto
It also gives me some nostalgia for Ed Brubaker's Winter Soldier series wherein these two did the same thing alongside Wolverine and Daredevil. Much of the runtime is Clint Barton doing very poor spy work He's often made and captured for the effort The running thought captions from Clint are entertaining as hell, and all of[...]

Jason Bourne Review: You Too Can Get That Déjà Vu Feeling
There's a few entertaining enough double and triple crosses, but not enough to really bring it out of the quagmire of trying to discern one of these films from another more than a few days after watching it.

Look! It Moves! #136 by Adi Tantimedh: Smiley, Then and Now

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy – Hannah's Review
Bereft of the guns, girls and glamour we know from the James Bond franchise, a realistic spy thriller is a dastardly tricky thing to pull off. At least in a way that will work as a big screen attraction. A spy thriller where almost all of the main cast members are over the age of fifty is[...]
