What’s your perfect movie experience?
Movies, when done well, can take the viewer to wherever they lead.
Ever since I can remember, movies have been a big part of my life.
My cousin and I would sit and watch movies — from horror to action — all the time when we hung out together.
Recently, I purchased a film that I had almost given up hope for. The movie, didn’t get a lot of good reviews when it premiered last March.
