Superheroes, Sci-fi, fantasy, action, and epic movies to watch in a CINEMA 2015-2020by 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 think Legends got the gist of the original books way better than Greenhouse... did.
