Hot Rumor: Jeremy Allen White Eyed to Star in Ben Stiller’s Crime Film 'The Seven Five' at Amazon MGM

Plus, my thoughts on the new Netflix series 'Baby Reindeer' and Marvel's latest trailer for 'Deadpool & Wolverine.'

Happy Monday, folks! And Happy Passover to all who celebrate…

This weekend, I watched a ton of “old” movies for the first time following last week’s Walter Hill bender. On Friday night, I watched The Silent Partner starring Elliott Gould and Christopher Plummer, and I thought it was excellent — just a really clever, well-written thriller about a bank teller who sniffs out a thief’s plan and decides to enrich himself during the heist. Plummer, in particular, was fantastic as the psychotic bank robber.

On Sunday, I watched Rolling Thunder starring William Devane and Tommy Lee Jones, followed by Nighthawks starring Sylvester Stallone, Rutger Hauer, and Billy Dee Williams. I liked both of them — Rolling Thunder follows a P.O.W. (Devane) who returns home from Vietnam only to see his wife and child murdered in front of him, prompting him to seek revenge down in Mexico.

Meanwhile, Nighthawks finds Stallone and Williams playing New York cops on the trail of an international terrorist (Hauer), and though it’s a little corny at times, I enjoyed its energetic pacing and Hauer’s ice-cold performance.

Track down all three of those movies if you can — you can rent The Silent Partner on Prime Video, while Rolling Thunder is available on Tubi. Next up, I think, will be the 1975 movie Night Moves starring Gene Hackman, which I’ve always heard good things about.

Anyway, in tonight’s newsletter, you’ll read about Jeremy Allen White circling a crooked cop movie from Ben Stiller, the latest actor to join the cast of Mission: Impossible 8, Kim Kardashian’s new Netflix series Calabasas, and Russell Crowe’s latest “exorcist” movie, LaKeith Stanfield: Vampire Hunter, plus, my thoughts on Netflix’s Baby Reindeer and Marvel’s new trailer for Deadpool & Wolverine.
