Kong: Skull Island – Review

“KONG: SKULL ISLAND” Most of the summer blockbusters traces back to Jaws. I think Jaws probably was the film that started the idea of the Summer blockbuster, because it proved you could make a movie on that scale and sell

Manchester By The Sea – Review

“MANCHESTER BY THE SEA” Manchester By The Sea is one of several films that comes out at this time in the UK, which is typically reserved for un-polished rubbish, like last week’s review of Assassins Creed or typical films that
