It was between the latest Transformers and Mad World on Thursday Movie Night, and the latter won in a heartbeat. Not even the unavailability of our regular evening time slot could deter us (no doubt every golden time slot was allocated to the money churning vehicular-robot smackdown) and we had to catch an ungodly 10pm […]Read more "Mad World (一念无明) (2016)"
