Drama 0


Alfred Hitchcock’s 1958 mystery thriller “Vertigo” has it all-fears, romance, lies, twists, obsession, and temptations. I’ve watched it for the first time, as part of its 60th Anniversary, and I […]

Love, Simon

“Love, Simon” is probably the first teen love story to bring tears to my eyes. It’s no Nicholas Spark cliche piece of crap or romances between monsters and humans; it’s […]
