Dark Phoenix -review (Netflix)

  I want to be objective. Hatred for a person you’ve never met or even seen in interview is probably unwarranted. Can you really dislike a person that you’re not even sure what they look like?

The Princess Bride – review

I watch a lot of films. A lot. I have always loved film and television and, though it is impossible to see everything  - I have to work after all - I have seen a fair few films.
