We’re minutes away from Halloween, and what better way to spend Spooky Season than with a (mildly) spooky film?

ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP

I’ve been pretty outspoken about my disappointment in cinema for now being almost exclusively remakes and reboots for quite some time, and though I won’t go out of my way to hate on a film just because it is a sequel I will watch said sequel with a little more critical eye to see if […]
