Notting Hill (1999) – reviewed by George

I loved it! As soon as the song “She” began behind the opening credits I was hooked. It’s a great song about a man’s devotion and obsession for one particular woman. Julia Roberts plays a huge American movie star who … Continue reading

Nature’s Grave (2008) – reviewed by George
