Geostorm: Film Review

I love the cinema, and the popcorn and the strategic seat selection. When the lights dim and the choc tops come out, the atmosphere balances.

Retelling a classic story can be┬árisky because audiences are firmly rooted into the original; however, I saw The Jungle Book at the cinema today, and found that it brought new life to an old favourite. It was vibrant and engaging, and appealing to a broad family audience. The classic soundtrack was playfully incorporated, and adapted,…… Continue reading The Jungle Book: Review
