He was taken very seriously over the years even in the Saturday m... Read More

Let me say that Yuri Orlov is one of the most despicable characters to g... Read More

My mother always said, if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything. My grandma, however, said if you are reviewing a film, then put them on blast for being derivative, unimaginative and trite. Luckily, I'm about to find a happy mixture of both of their points of view, as I review Mortal Engines.Post-Apocalyptic fiction/entertain... Read More
