But out of fairness – did we expect anything less. They seemed to have embraced the absurdity of the fact that they have actually been hired to make another one of these and just went for every stupid, cliched, bad CGI moment they could … Continue reading

Trailer For ‘Gone Girl’ Raises All Kinds Of Questions.

The new one heading our way from David Fincher is titled ‘Gone Girl’ and it stars the polarizing Ben Affleck.
