To the Bone – Review

To the Bone is directed by Marti Noxon and stars Lily Collins as Ellen, a 20 year old college drop out suffering with anorexia.

The Weekend Binge – Luke Cage

It’s safe to say that we are nearing a time when we will soon be crushed under the onslaught of comic book adaptations. It’s a shame, as some of the most enjoyable films in recent years have displayed one or more characters with powers, but we’ve also seen tireless retreads of dark, gritty films wherein the heroes must battle with their inner turmoil over whether … Continue reading The Weekend Binge – Luke Cage

The shock-waves surrounding Poussey’s death and the subsequent breakout … Continue reading The Weekend Binge: Orange Is The New Black
