"Wanted to love it, wanted to like it, got neither"

The willing suspension of disbelief. Some of you will remember that from your school days. Some of you will be learning about it at the moment. Some of you will have absolutely no idea what I'm on about. The willing suspension of disbelief is a necessity for us to enjoy films that we know are a b...

Baby Mama(2008)

"a good laugh if you don't take it too seriously"

"Baby Mama" is a good laugh if you don't take it too seriously.It proves that things in life happen unexpectedly and that friendship no matter how impossible ca...

If u read my Iron Man review you'll know that i'm a pretty big fan of the old comic book movies. Hulk was one of those cartoons that i grew up watch...
