Based on the graphic novel of the same name, the plot follows Agent Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) recalling her investigation… Continue reading Atomic Blonde Review

The Purge: Election Year Review

The third installment in the survivor franchise definitely delivers its most enjoyable entry to date but a well tread plot and familiar characters doesn’t really help it stand out from the others.

The Shallows Review
