Summerland – Review

Are we starved of beautiful lesbian dramas and romances? Possible.

The problem isn’t Reynolds, it’s the films he had been in; RIPD, Wolverine Origins, and the aforementioned Wilder hasn’t exactly been fantastic cinema. Unfortunately, it has marred the talented actor … Continue reading Unpopped Kernels: The Voices (2015)
