Politic-a-thon 2: Milk Review

So we’ve come to the final film in Politic-a-thon 2, and I think it’s best to end with another excellent film looking at gay rights activism in the 1970s, Gus Van Sant’s Milk. I feel this is the best film to end with because of how important stuff presented in the film is today with… Continue reading Politic-a-thon 2: Milk Review

Guardians of the Galaxy Review

Out of all the blockbusters coming out this summer, Guardians of the Galaxy seemed like the biggest risk.

Politic-a-thon 2: The Ghost Review

Sometimes when watching a film, you can’t help but note the similarities between the events of the film and real life, as is the case with The Ghost. A lot of elements in the film are clearly inspired by Tony Blair’s tenure as Prime Minister and the links he had with America and as such… Continue reading Politic-a-thon 2: The Ghost Review
