The Rock

ALCATRAZ. ONLY ONE MAN HAS EVER BROKEN OUT.

This film may … Continue reading Planet Terror

Ellison sued … Continue reading Terminator: The Deadly Energizer Bunny

Judging from what some of my classmates were talking about, I understood that Aliens was a dark, scary and very exciting film, a special experience indeed. When I finally … Continue reading Aliens: Mother Against Mother
