Playing It Cool

2015-03-06 12:13

What it's about:

This is the story of me, a young man disillusioned by love, who meets a breathtaking young woman, her, at a charity dinner by pretending to be a philanthropist. Only one problem: she’s engaged.

Hands of Stone

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
