Headshot Review

Headshot Review – Oh Hollywood, Look What You’ve Done

Logan Review

Logan Review (IMAX) – Pass The Adamantium On The Left-Hand Side

All good things come to an end, though sometimes it’s sad when they do. Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine has been about for 17 years now, since he appeared in the first X-Men movie back in 2000.
