It’s everything you could possibly expect. For some, a nauseating clichéd ridden mess of epic proportions. For others, a special effects extravaganza with The Rock having some B-movie fun. FINALLY! THE ROCK HAS COME BACK . . . TO CALIFORNIA! In the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California, a rescue-chopper pilot (Dwayne ‘The Rock’ … Continue reading SAN ANDREAS REVIEW

Not the Coens worst, but … Continue reading Inside Llewyn Davis Review
