RAPID REVIEW- “Thor: Love and Thunder” Suffers from Its Own Director

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See Natalie Portman in “Annihilation” EARLY & FOR FREE
If you’re a fan of the Southern Reach book series, then you already know what Annihilation is about. If you’re like the rest of us who AREN’T familiar with the books, you’ll probably watch this trailer and think, “What tha HELL is going on here?”
