We’ve all been around them, you know them well, they’re right up there with the constant nose sniffers, the “you know” and “like”-ers…..they’re the people who refuse to clear their throat before speaking. It’s impossible to pay attention to what they’re saying - you’re too focused on the gargly sounds, the mucous and other […]

“NAME BRAND PERFUME!” means name-brand knock offs that are […]

*Ebert says: ‘The Notebook” cuts between the same couple at two seasons in their lives. We see them in the urgency of young romance, and then we see them as old people, she disappearing into the shadows of Alzheimer’s, he steadfast in his love.*
