Retro Review: The Shawshank Redemption (25th Anniversary)

Often hailed as the greatest movie of all time, The Shawshank Redemption celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year. Adapted from a Stephen King classic and starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman, there’s definite potential for this movie to stand up to such claims of greatness a quarter of a century after its release.   With this being my very […]

Review: The Wife

Review: The Wife

One of the most prolific actors in Hollywood, Glenn Close has begun her seventh Oscars campaign, having failed to bring home the illustrious prize six previous times.
