The Russia House

I don’t have any especially fond memories of this movie, but figured it would still be good to revisit, and hey, it’s a John Le Carré thriller starring Sean Connery. It’s definitely a slow burn, but I did enjoy it for the most part, except for the kinda creepy romance twist between Connery and Pfeiffer (in terms of age difference). Not very exciting as a film, but it suits the story.

5 R-Rated Things We Want to See in Justice League

5 R-Rated Things We Want to See in Justice League Recently, it was revealed that Zack Snyder’s Justice League may possibly carry an R-rating due to strong language and intense violence. Snyder even revealed that Batman drops an F-bomb at one point which is sure to get Snyder Cut naysayers ruffled to no end. Still, one F-bomb and a few bits of violence typically aren’t enough to warrant an R-rating. So, we started thinking, what R-rated moments do we want to see in Zack Snyder’s Justice Leagu...
