I Give It a Year (A PopEntertainment.com Movie Review)

I Give It a Year The “I give it a year” in the title was a prediction of the bride’s sister during the wedding that opens this British romantic comedy – which is neither romantic nor particularly funny.

The Bates Haunting (A PopEntertainment.com Movie Review)

The Bates Haunting The Bates Haunting is both a cheesy low-budget horror film and an infomercial, all wrapped up in a big, blood-red bow. The product it is hawking is The Haunted Hayride and Bates Motel, a well-known Halloween attraction in Glen Mills, PA (which is in the suburbs of Philadelphia).  Every year, a local … Continue reading
