Review: The Promise starring Christian Bale

  I can’t believe I call myself a history buff when I had no idea the breadth of the Armenian genocide that took place in the early 1900’s. It’s kind of amazing that it took this long for a movie to be made about the events, I don’t know that there wasn’t and honestly there probably was, but I didn’t catch it.

The first promo for AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire aired last night during the finale for The Walking Dead. From what I’ve heard that finale was disappointing. I was tuned in to Showtime, catching television’s more underrated comedy-drama Shameless. But from what I can see, this half-minute promo looks promising.
