  • Unforgettable - Review

    For a film that should thrive in its elusive nature, and use suspense as its greatest tool and means of storytelling, instead it gives too much away, leaving nowhere to truly go.

  • The Zookeeper's Wife - Review

    You would think, given the narrative, that suspense would be a prevalent sensation within this movie, and yet the film comes devoid of any real tension.

Comedy Movie Reviews
