  • Me Before You

    Me Before You 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Jul, 2016

    Me Before You is a story impossible not to fall in love with. If you’ve read the book beforehand, then you will be eager to see the beautifully crafted Lou and Will come to life; if not, then prepare to fall in love and just as quickly have your heart broken like never before.

    The book is one of those reads that, even though you know what’s going to happen in the end, you can’t help but be filled with…

    Sucker Punch 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Apr, 2013 49

    I was told beforehand that this was a love it or hate it film and that there was no in between, and it's easy to see why that is. Personally, I don't agree with any of the negative reviews, so it turns out that I'm one of the few that love it.

    Firstly, I don't understand why many of the reviews I have read go on about the huge emphasis on rape for. This is what put me off at…
