  • The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Review

    It’s been two years and three movies, and I wish I could say that I was able to come to grips with the mess that Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy became.

  • Horns Review: Come for Radcliffe, Stay for the Thrill

    The film Horns is one of those unexpected movies that is destined to become a cult classic.
