Posted: November 9, 2018 at 7:33 am   /   Movie Reviews

Zombie Nazis. That is all. [Edit] Okay, so apparently, according to my editor, I can’t just write a five-word review. I’m sorry, I thought this was America. [Edit 2] And apparently my paycheck’s getting docked for this one. Anyways, Overlord. I remember hearing the rumors starting late last year/early this year that JJ Abrams was […]

Unfortunately, it never manages to craft a compelling story or characters to match the breathtaking visuals. Clara (Mackenzie Foy) is a young girl who, along with […]
