Sharp Objects is a psychological thriller, based on a novel with the same name, written by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl). Much like Gone Girl, there are obvious and beautiful psychological elements at play. Amy Adams plays Camille Preaker, a crime reporter who is sent to her hometown to investigate the murder of a young girl. As Camille comes back, the demons of her past resurface and take her to places she never wanted to go back to. ...

Directed By: Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck
Cast: Brie Larson, Samuel L Jackson, Jude Law, Clark Greg

DuckTales Season 1 Review

DuckTales

Back in 1990, there was no cable TV and hence no Cartoon Network. I did not have the luxury of 24-hours of Centurions or Swat Kats. All I had was Sunday. It was the day, more like the hour of cartoons on Doordarshan and like all other kids, I waited for it through the week. This was 1 hour of pure adventure. Death-defying, high-octane, action of Ducktales and Talespin. I loved watching it and would not miss it for anything. As Cartoon Network started, the sunset on Ducktales and Talespin. ...
