I’m wondering how much they paid in royalties for Titanic for this one? Pride and Prejudice got a zombie version and this one is definitely Titanic with Zombies. Not that I’m complaining.

Anyway, really glad I had the chance to see this and that it streamed online making … Continue reading Your Name Movie Review: Body Swapping, Teen Romance Played Out On Epic Stage
