For the Brave Women (and some Men) Out There

I just finished watching North Country right now on TV and my blood has never boiled to the roof like this before. Though what was being depicted in the movie was not BASED on a true story, it was only INSPIRED by a true story. But I can not imagine anybody was able to endure […]

Freedom Writers

A lot of people drew similarity between Dangerous Minds and Freedom Writers because of the lives portrayed between gangsta’ students and their white heroic teacher. But hell, they are wrong.

Volver

Volver is one of the show that I seriously can’t tell too much … it’ll spoil its beauty. Though I was quite disappointed with the ending, too short … but the whole movie was very beautifully made.
