All the (not rebels) are under imminent threat of death all the time, not just the reluctant protagonists with screentime. Finn kinda got roped into something he didn't wholeheartedly sign on for,...

I went to see a PG-13 violent horror comedy (Happy Death Day 2), and there was a British family there with not 1, not 2, but 4 very young children. I think the oldest was around six, and the...
