El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie Review

“Run.” This was the single word uttered by Walter Hartwell White to his partner Jesse Pinkman, after saving his life by running over two notorious drug dealers in a season three episode of Breaking Bad, the absolute greatest work of drama to be produced for television.

47 Meters Down: Uncaged Review

Summer might be close to over, but there’s always time for another killer shark movie. While last year’s major fish flick was Jon Turteltaub’s The Meg, this year’s is the sequel to 47 Meters Down.
