    Here's an idea: get 110 lions, a handful of tigers, a few leopards, jaguars, and cheetahs and throw them in and around a house with a handful of humans. Despite knowing 1000% for sure that no one died during the making of this incredibly, insanely ill advised production I was just waiting for someone to get eaten (that's not to say that no one got seriously hurt, because according to Wikipedia over 70 people did).

    Gotta Watch ’Em All: William Powell

    A pretty average will they/won’t they romance slightly elevated by the fact that they’re in “exotic” Singapore, which is, of course, portrayed with all the “jungle native” stereotypes you’d imagine from a 1931 production.

    Jason Momoa murdering drug runners in creative ways set against a beautiful snowy mountain backdrop. You either want to see that or you don't.
