Promising Young Woman Review

Promising Young Woman takes the term revenge thriller to the next level. Revenge has never been done like this before.

This film premiered atContinue reading “Promising Young Woman Review”

Wonder Woman 1984 Review

The DC Extended Universe has gotten larger and larger since its inception back in 2015. It’s not as big as the MCU, but there are enough films to determine if this experiment worked. With Wonder Woman, it started turning the table from some bad films to good ones. Wonder Woman 1984 is the follow up to that 2017Continue reading “Wonder Woman 1984 Review”
