NOCTURNAL ANIMALS

Novel adaptations are obviously no new trend, but how about a novel adaptation that’s principally focused on somebody reading an entire novel? Well, now we’re breaking new ground here, folks!

He’s baaaaaaaaaaaaack! That’s right, ladies and gentlemen. America’s sweetheart Mel Gibson is back behind the camera after a decade long hiatus and he’s better than ever. After his drunken tirade in 2006 caused his stardom to spiral downward, we all thought we had seen the end of […]
