Godless Season One Review

Lauded Hollywood screenwriter Scott Frank (“Out Of Sight”, “Minority Report”, “Logan”) brings a refreshing tale of a plucky band of women’s struggle with life in the Wild West to the small screen in his first foray into the medium as a Director.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) Review

When Thomas finds himself deposited in a community…
