Finally Watched: Snatch (2000)

Guy Ritchie. Okay, I guess I should say more than that – I’d always intended to watch this movie but after Richie’s latest directed movie; Aladdin I was itching for more of his distinctive directorial style. Instead of rewatching King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, I thought I’d choose something new (to me). Sidebar: I […]

The secret impresses no-one. The trick you use it for is everything The Why This used to be one of my favourite movies; the story intrigued me and I remember feeling like I never confirmed the meaning of the ending. Many years have passed since I last watched The Prestige, and as I unfortunately have […]
