Mixed feelings...
20 January 2020 | by skywalker7471See all my reviews

Started off really good them went downhill fast with too much emphasis on 90s action movies for some weird reason missing out on tons of 80s classics that weren't even mentioned ie- Invasion USA,Big Trouble in Little China,Avenging Force,Delta Force,Rocky 4...very strange documentary
