The Curse of La Llorona Review – La Lloroh No!

The Curse of La Llorona does the same sort of set pieces all the other Conjuringverse movies do, so fans of Annabelle and The Nun will probably enjoy this too. It’s better than the first Annabelle but...

D2: The Mighty Ducks’ D25th Anniversary

When D2: The Mighty Ducks opened 25 years ago, I didn’t see it because I was any big fan of The Mighty Ducks. I thought it had been an average underdog sports movie where Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez...

Shazam! Movie Review: Super Friends
