Revisiting Disney : Robin Hood (1973)

Honestly, I can’t tell when the last time was that I watched this film. I had to be a young child. So, obviously, it’s never been one of my favorites. Although, I do know that it is tremendously loved as a part of the Disney animated film library. Here are my thoughts: it’s good, but... Continue Reading →

Slow Burning Horror: Hereditary (2018)

If I had to describe the film Hereditary in two words it would be slow burning. This film was a lot to take in. It was heartbreaking and absolutely disturbing.
