…Hit the Heights

It’s been several months and pairs of 3D glasses, but 16 movies later we’ve arrived at the end. Another summer of blockbusters has come and gone and that means one thing here at 2WC: Final Judgment Time. This year we even have a fun new category, that we can’t believe we’re only just introducing: Best…

…miss it by that much

For those who missed it, Friday marked the end of our 2013 Summer of Blockbusters (here’s the final review if you missed it: “Kick-Ass 2” ).  As our Summer of Blockbusters comes to a close, we thought we’d take a moment to look back. This summer had its highs and lows, but it also had its…
