William Shatner battles Ernest Borgnine and John Travolta

Trailer for Ti West’s Pearl (2022) drops

Deadfall (2012) is a curiosity for two reasons, the declining career of Eric Bana and a terrible Michigan setting. This movie behaves a lot like Fargo, in that it takes place during the… Continue reading
