With a combination of new faces and established actors like Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson, does this new movie also kick ass? Join Arnie, Stuart, and Jakob to find out!

Join Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie in this review to find out!

It's been 18 years since Céline and Jesse met on that Vienna-bound train, both in real life and for the two fictional characters played by Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke. But where has time taken these two characters?

Join Jakob, Arnie, and Stuart as they review the final film in this series to find out!
