Pacific Rim: Uprising (2018)

Every so often it’s always good to just watch gigantic mechanical beings crash into each other and reduce cities to rubble. And I think that’s largely why Transformers has such a wide audience.

Fast-forward ten years and Michael Bay is still going with this franchise with his latest instalment... Continue Reading →
