We Can Be Heroes – If Hallmark made super hero movies…

Netflix’s We Can Be Heroes (2020), checks off most of the trademark characteristics of a Hallmark movie. Crappy effects? Check.

Times Home Alone should make you say what the hell?

Home Alone has delighted a cult-following of fans since 1990.

Double Double Toil and Trouble tapped into the Olsen Twins’ star power of the early 90s to deliver a truly terrible, made for TV movie. In it, you can see the full range of their “acting ability,” which, simply put, is not expansive. I blessedly was able to avoid watching Double Double Toil and Trouble …
