by Julien Faddoul Rough
Night Five best
friends from college reunite 10 years later for a wild bachelorette weekend in

by Julien Faddoul Wonder
Woman * An Amazon
princess comes to the world of Man to become the greatest of the female

by Julien Faddoul Pirates

by Julien Faddoul Alien:

Crisp Criticism - "Beauty and the Beast", "The Boss Baby", "Power Rangers"
by Julien Faddoul Beauty and
the Beast A remake of an
animated film made and released by The Walt Disney Company in 1991. A critic-proof
