Movie Review – Rain Man

Rain Man US (1988) Dir. Barry Levinson Just a heads up that this will be a different review from the norm as it deals with a very personal theme for me.

Movie Review – Smile

Smile US (2022) Dir. Parker Finn I’m not one for smiling which is why I avoid having my photo taken.
