Things I Like: Gangs of New York (2002 Film)

I think the first time I’ve heard of Gangs of New York was some time last year. Back in 2002, I was just fourteen years old and this movie was certainly not on the radar. The only person I knew of in it back then that I liked was Cameron Diaz. I came to respectContinue reading “Things I Like: Gangs of New York (2002 Film)”

The Revenant is certainly a movie that caught my eye thanks to the Academy Awards. This is the film that finally got Leonardo DiCaprio an Oscar after so many years and nominations.

Things I Like: The Great Gatsby (2013 film)

I do recall when The Great Gatsby was in theaters. I’ve heard a lot of positive and negative opinions since then and I decided to wait. I loved the book when I read it in high school, so I eventually couldn’t wait much longer. The plot follows the book very closely. A man named NickContinue reading “Things I Like: The Great Gatsby (2013 film)”
