Click here for the review... One of the best, if not thee best slavery film that you'll ever see. Very brutal and hard to watch... you have been warned.
About Time: A+
click here for the review... Great Story. Thorough and superbly told. Perfect date flick. May have knocked Love Actually off it's pedestal.
Click here for the review... One of the most underrated and surprisingly stunning films that I've seen in a very long time. Heart pounding tense scenes and situations. A picture that you can literally become apart of while you are sitting there in the theater seat.
