Being an introvert is often misunderstood as being boring, uninteresting, and plain. People have a tendency to care less and aggrieve towards those who are reticent, quiet, and what we often call “loner”, “weirdo”, or “creep”.

Action movies are historically built upon a foundation of ultra-masculine men performing superhuman feats. Because of this – far more than any other genre – they’re prone to being comically over-the-top and borderline campy. These ten cheesy cult films – some intentionally goofy, others not so much – rank among the finest that action cinema has to offer.   1…. Read more »

With eight films so far in his career, it can be said that Wes Anderson has created a world of his own. There are very few directors who are as distinguished in their styles as Anderson is with his own.

80’s movies have always had the unfortunate place of being stuck between the 70’s, considered the second golden age of Hollywood and the 90’s, which saw a glut of great movies being released along with some new director’s taking Hollywood in a new direction.

Documentaries over recent years have acquired an impact unimaginable for non-fiction films in prior decades. Great modern documentaries such as Michael Moore’s Roger & Me (1989) and Steve James’s Hoop Dreams (1994) championed by film critic Roger Ebert, were critically well regarded but bypassed for further honours.
