    Does it at times feel like we’re watching a video game? Sure! Is Brian Tyree Henry hilarious? Yep! Will there be a sequel? Hopefully! 

    Long live the titans!

The memories that haunt the lead character flow in and out as the film progresses proving to be quite ahead of its time (‘63). There are so many…
