Movie reviews for Push

This is a strangely enjoyable sci-fi movie. I half expected it to be similar to Jumper, and Wanted with james McAvoy and Angelina Jolie, and the plot does get a little convoluted.

Movie reviews for Heroes season 3

Another great series which originated in 2006 and promoted as “This year’s Lost“, although the Writer’s Strike did hold it off for a while with only 11 episodes aired till the end of December of 2007, which led to some confusion as to what happened to a few characters, it is still mesmerising to watch, […]
