Patrick’s 10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2012

2012 has started out pretty rocky for films. The cineplexes are currently clogged with the dreck of the year just like every January/February, months which are widely held as the dumping ground for films not up to par. With this in mind, I look a head to better times to come in the year with […]

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn part 1 Movie Review

Generally, despite their failure to approach real quality, the Twilight movies have tended to get better with each installment owing mostly to better directors taking the helm.
