Alpha – Who Saved Who?

Swift take: I typically avoid these kinds of movies featuring dogs, because well, I am human and I know how all these dog films tug at your heart strings. I know some people that refuse to watch films about man’s best friend for that very reason. Alpha appears to have a Clan of the Cave […]
