Snowpiercer: The Complete First Season

I unexpectedly received the opportunity to check out the complete first season of Snowpiercer and I'm here to let you know if it's worth picking it up when it hits shelves in a few days' time.

The Midnight Sky

Have you ever watched a film and it immediately turns you off because of some questionable decisions by the creative team? That was my experience with The Midnight Sky. More so than just boredom, questionable direction, a shallow story, or bad acting, what soured my take on this film is nonsensical storytelling logic. 

Death of Me (Blu-ray)

Maggie Q and Luke Hemsworth face a supernatural threat in "Death of Me,' now on Blu-ray! Here's our review!

Wonder Woman 1984

Though it might be releasing a bit later (and differently) than expected, Wonder Woman 1984 makes for an incredible Christmas present that delivers hope and good feelings all around. Check out our full review of DC’s latest release!
