2020 Feels Like a Badly-Written Disaster/Political Thriller Movie

Pic from MAD Magazine (definitely fitting). If a human hand put this together, 2020 might just be a fusion disaster movie/ political (thriller?) screenplay that's been rejected 30 times for being too long, too outlandish, too boring, too stupid to exist. Something even Roland Emmerich or Michael Bay would roll their eyes and pass up … Continue reading 2020 Feels Like a Badly-Written Disaster/Political Thriller Movie
