The year of 2014 was, in my humble opinion, a very special one for films.

Thankfully, I found there to be a ton of surprises when it came to entertaining big screen offerings, as to what did (or didnít) make money. And there are...

This red band teaser for Under the Skin will mess with your eyeballs

One one hand, Scarlett Johansson in a bra and panties makes for automatic viewing for me but on the other hand, I am not sure what the hell the movie is actually about. I have read the plot summaries and know it has science fiction elements and some hints of horror, but I just cannot...
