Posted Oct 22, 2016
3/5 37% Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) Basically this is still just Cruise beating people up for two hours, which as it turns out isn't such a bad thing. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
Posted Oct 21, 2016
2/5 19% Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) Scoring laughs with this group should be like shooting fish in a barrel, but instead it's shooting nothing but blanks. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

Posted Oct 21, 2016
