IO-pinion How many Hunger Games movies are produced to date? Is it 3? Oh I looked it up, it's 4. I watched the first one, it gained a little bit of momentum from the media before it hit the theaters here being a movie where teenagers are killing one-other in a game. I didn't find … Continue reading The Wall (2017)

IO-pinion Okay the movie gets only a 6.0 on IMDB and a 42 on Metacritic. But man, did I see a refreshing original movie.

IO-pinion It's been a while since I've seen a western. (Oh forgot about West World but that wasn't a movie). The last one has been The Hateful Eight (2015) because of the Quentin Tarantino hype but the one before that has several years ago. It's a western, how not to expect cowboys & indians, colt and dynamite … Continue reading The Magnificent Seven (2016)
