Kong: Skull Island (2017) – reviewed by George

Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) – reviewed by George

This is a private secret service, neither a part of MI-5 (the equivalent of the American NSA) nor MI-6 (the equivalent of the CIA). It was founded either by a very upscale haberdashery and its owners, or by the tailors … Continue reading
