EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Apr 26, 2022

 This is a film that has gotten a lot of buzz online, and, since it also stars the legendary Michelle Yeoh, I decided to go out to the theater and see it.

TCM Classic Film Festival Day 3

Backlots Posted by Lara on Apr 26, 2022

TCM Classic Film Festival Day 2

Backlots Posted by Lara on Apr 24, 2022

Day 2 of the TCM Classic Film Festival was one filled with laughter.

THE BATMAN

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Apr 24, 2022

 Batman is my favorite comic book character, and just about every movie featuring the Dark Knight I've managed to go and see soon after its theatrical release. For the latest one, however, I felt no sense of urgency in seeing it in a theater. It is because I'm burned out by comic book movi read more

He does her a service by nabbing her a job, and in such a world, he probably expects some recompens read more
