What if I forgave myself even though I’d done something I shouldn’t have? Wild Review

Film Review – American Sniper (2015)

Review of The Imitation Game

Netflix’s Top 5 Shows

Being a student, I’ve watched quite a bit of Netflix. Especially now I’m not a student after dropping out of Uni and currently unemployed (I’m trying, honest). I’m pretty sure Netflix has been my life support for the last few weeks and over the last 6 months it has saved […]
