The Revenant (2015) Film Review

"BEAUTY & THE BEAST" Likes: Leonardo DiCaprio, Survival & Revenge Films, True Stories Dislikes: Excessive Film Running Times, Birdman (2014) From the moment the first frame hits the silver screen, you’re fully aware what lies ahead on this journey you’ll be taking for the next 2 hours and 36 minutes.

‘Once Upon a Time’ Recap ‘Nimue’

The pieces are finally coming together! Finally! This show has kept my attention (although sometimes wavering at times) for the last five seasons and I’m happy to see character and plot development paying off for once. You’re a wizard, Merlin. But how did this iconic lad become the person he was always meant to be? Well, in this episode it’s revealed that he drank from the Holy Grail thousands (yes, thousands) of years ago and his transformation to the all seeing and knowing Wizard began. Dude was on the path...
