Yeti: The Giant of the 20th Century (1977) - Blu-ray Review

Yeti: The Giant of the 20th Century (1977)

It begins, hilariously enough, with some fairly shitty-looking stock footage of glaciers sliding off into the sea.  Big budget this Yeti flick is not.  Relatively quickly, we are whisked away to a fishing trip that quickly gets ruined by a ...

The King of Staten Island (2020) - Movie Review

The King of Staten IslandThere’s something about a Judd Apatow film that identifies itself almost immediately.
