The Mummy Unwraps The Bandages of a Dark Monster Universe (Movie Review)

Despite loving Sofia Boutella in Kingsman: The Secret Service I must admit I wasn’t too keen on this newest monster tale reboot when I saw the first theatrical trailer.  Yawn!  I thought to myself another modern day movie that feels like it has to insert a woman into a leading role normally occupied by a man.  I […]


Office Christmas Party (Blu-ray Review)
