    A Haunting in Venice


    A Haunting in Venice finally finds form for Kenneth Branagh and his cursed Poirot adaption; that has at least one of its stars caught up in controversy for the past two films if not more than one.

Nothing quite beats Optimus Prime going full ruthless; death-to-all mode in that final showdown - and the CGI still holds up ridiculously well.

    Here La La Land follows on two people with big dreams. Mia (Emma Stone) is an aspiring actress…
