by searching-girl | created - 12 Mar 2013 | updated - 31 Jan 2015 | Public

. What other kinds of films are even worth to go to the cinema anymore? Open range, speed, spec. effects.. are reasons for me to still drive an hour per direction to a cinema. Suggestions via P.M. appreciated !

. . . . . . I do NOT have a facebook-account !

. Order: 'List Order' is mostly the US release date. If the US has no release date or a very late one, than it is Germany's release date
