Lisa’s Week In Review: 10/7/19 — 10/13/19


This hasn’t been an easy week.  Gary left us far too soon and it’s still hard for me to believe that we’re not going to be reading any more of his reviews.  All of us here at the Shattered Lens — writers and readers — are going to miss him.  If you want to pay tribute to Gary, head over to the Cracked Rearviewer and check out his reviews.  Gary not only loved movies but he loved to share the love with his readers, as well.
