Let’s be honest: I’m still recovering from Avengers: Infinity War (A: IW). Given I only saw A: IW a couple of weeks ago, it is still fresh in my mind. I, like many others, am desperate for a feel-good movie. Something to lighten the emotional weight now resting on my […]
It’s World Environment Day 2018, and I’ve been tagged! Help #BeatPlasticPollution and commit to change. I’m tagging GeekMom, Hoyts Cinemas, and Event Cinemas to join in too! Tag! You’re it!
