Film Reviews

What’s your favourite film? Why? I enjoy film and hearing people’s views and opinions on them. I believe film is a great outlet and engaging in conversation over film can lend itself to other areas of life and help inspire your thoughts and feelings on any subject. I’ll be using this space to give my opinions and hopefully to hear yours. I’m also keen on environmental issues and try to encourage everyone to develop an awareness of these issues in the community. I believe the foundations of success are built on the involvement of everyone and hearing these voices allows us to shape a better understanding of life and the planet we live on.
