Little Women – The perfect film adaptation

“I like good strong words that mean something.” – Jo March It would seem that Greta Gerwig values good strong words just as much as Jo and good strong characters to go with them. I’m a little lost for any words of my own. Little Women was perfection. I grew up reading Little Women & Good Wiv...

The Haunting of Hill House is one of my favourite shows of all time and Flanagan ...

Death Stranding: Ashton’s spoiler-free review!

For almost three decades, Hideo Kojima has pretty much been known solely for the Metal Gear franchise.
