LOGAN

Comic book films are just fine. I’m not a huge fan of them, but I don’t have a problem with them, either. There’s a lot of really good ones, as well as plenty of terrible ones. My main issue is that they’re mostly all the same. They often […]

Another year has come to an end, which means it’s time to go over my favorite and least favorite films of 2016. A lot of people have been claiming 2016 was a weak year for films, but I disagree. If you mostly watch the big Hollywood tentpoles, […]
