[Movie Review] Ghostbusters

Who you gonna call? The four ghost-busting ladies with their new and improved toys steal the slimelight.  One thing for sure, Paul Feig picked the right people to star in the 1984 Ghostbusters reboot.

[Movie Review] Carol

Carol is a cinematic masterpiece There are not many lesbian films out there that sees its main characters with a happy ending. Carol not only took the risk in creating something so original and masterful, the product of a plunge is a gleaming reflection of love, acceptance and desire. Everything […]
