The TFR Weekend Marathon Guide

So, it’s Black Friday, and you’ve got a pile of new films to watch. Well, given it’s the weekend, you’ve only got one solution – a marathon. Most people don’t do marathons, because they’re responsible, mature adults. I say through that out the window, and set yourself up for an overnight...
