Movie Review: ‘Queen & Slim’ Starring Daniel Kaluuya​, Jodie Turner-Smith​

Posted: November 27, 2019 at 10:06 am   /   Movie Reviews

Space movies enthrall me. Whether they’re based on science or entirely science-fiction, a good space film can really hit the right chords with me, and we’ve had an influx of really good ones in the past several years.
