Review: Gravity

Review: We’re the Millers

– by ADAM DALE – Lately, the comedy genre has been on the decline with generic and unfunny films filling up the screen with unoriginal stories and actors literally doing the least amount possible to get their paycheck. There are always exceptions, of course, and a select few films have b[...]
