  • The Flintstones & WWE: Stone Age Smackdown

    The Flintstones & WWE: Stone Age Smackdown 2015

    ★★★ Watched 18 Mar, 2015

    After the surprisingly positive reaction to last year’s Scooby-Doo! WrestleMania Mystery, the idea of a WWE and Flintstones crossover didn’t sound quite so crazy. Arriving just about a year after the first animated film in WWE Studios’ history, their second outing, The Flintstones & WWE: Stone Age SmackDown proves to be another success.

    The Pianist 2002

    ★★★★★ Added

His mother died, and he has said the only thing that will bring closure to that pain is his own death. It is for these reasons that The Pianist is one of the most personal films ever made. It is another in a long line of Holocaust films, but it finds a new way to…
