I had a Writers’ Guild meeting last night, which meant that I wasn’t able to get to the movies until close to 10pm. I am an old man (in spirit, not in age), so this [ … ]

As you read this review, I would like you to hum a song — any song — from the original soundtrack to 1993’s Jurassic Park. I would like you to do this for two reasons. [ … ]

Incredibles 2

June 15, 2018 Josh 0
