THANK GOD FOR ACTION A GO GO! Because when the world seems imbalanced, unfair, and just outright cruel, the only thing that can re-calibrate your belief system is the notion that good can triumph over evil. And where do we get these beliefs in 2017? From movies, video games, comics, and TV shows. Becuase our real-life heroes will always fail us, but fictional ones cannot.
So, I say again: Thank God for Action A Go Go!
Here are 7 ACTION A GO GO-APPROVED TRAILERS from last week!
