Cinematic Releases: There's No Place Like Home: A Ghost Story (2017) - Reviewed

Director David Lowery (Ain't Them Bodies Saints) has crafted something much more existential and profound with this film--a love story that transcends time and physics.

Rumor Mill: Anne Hathaway Circling Barbie Role

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - We've already come to the conclusion that no toy line is safe from the cinematic world of big budget franchise movies. From Transformers to G.I.

Cinematic Releases: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) - Reviewed
