Books turned into screen fodder is the theme for today's reviews, with iconic creatives in the mix to offer weight to tuning into these programs. The big movie of the week hitting theaters and HBOMax is Clint Eastwood in Cry Macho; this semi-modern Western takes place in 1979 with Eastwood himself playing a former rodeo champion on a quest across the border. Next is Dan Brown's Lost Symbols series streaming on Peacock and bringing back a younger version of Brown's Robert Langdon character in his early adventures.
