Searching (incl audio)

This film reminds me of any cutting edge upgrade that truly wows consumers. It’s also a great story told in a highly effective, suspenseful way. All this with the screen never shifting from a laptop display. Searching (2018) PG-13 | 1h 42min | Drama, Mystery, Thriller | 31 August 2018 (USA) After his 16-year-old daughter […]

The Story of Us

Some movies are feel-good the whole way through. Others are just sad. Others still take you through ups and downs to leave you sighing because you have just experienced life as it is, or almost anyway. This film is definitely one of those. I won’t call it feel good but it can still be called […]

Diabolique (1955)

Sami Blood: Audio Film Review
