The Weekly Pulse – The Gatekeeper’s Guide to Movies

Hello one and all. Welcome to the wrap up of another exciting, death-defying week of internet movie good-ness that is Inside Pulse. Okay, well, maybe not death-defying. I hope everyone has survived the holiday shopping rush and is now all set to sit back, relax, and enjoy the upcoming weekend (Or whatever holidays you do or don’t celebrate).
