The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part Two (2015)

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part Two may be the bleakest Young Adult-adaptation ever put to film. It’s a franchise that began with the televised spectacle of children killing children, so it’s never exactly been the cuddliest environment for our emotions. 1,683 more words

After Daredevil it’s pretty fair to say that expectations for this series were pretty high. Even as I write this, IMDB considers it the 94th greatest TV show ever. 378 more words


Parent Movie Review: CREED

WHAT’S IT ABOUT? The son of boxing legend Apollo Creed enlists his late father’s rival and best friend, Rocky Balboa, to train him. (It’s really about much more than that, but I don’t want to spoil it). 520 more words
