Mr. Brooks (2007)

First things first, Mr. Brooks is not a very good film, so if all you wanted to know was whether to watch it or not, DON’T and stop reading this review now. Okay, for all of you still with me now, I can go into why it’s so crap. Psycho killer movies are hard to […]

If you don’t like the whole idea, then this film is […]
