Starstruck
If I may be brutally honest, I don’t like remakes. Having grown up during the 80s and 90s, I’m accustomed to wildly original ideas being made directly for the big screen. For the past 20 years, we’ve ...

Crazy, Cool, Fun
Romantic comedies are among the biggest hit or miss genres, of movies to make. They have to be finely crafted, in order to work. If all goes well, you get an instant classic, that is remembered, quote...
