The Movie Whore 1 comment

Ray (Farrell) is a young guy who hates that he has been sent to this small town that is something out of a fairy tale and Ken (Gleason) is his mentor who loves being in th...

Frank Miller and the movies

Frank Miller and the movies Frank Miller re-wrote the book for not only writing the graphic novel but for taking that graphic novel to the big screen.

Marvel Comics and the movies
