The Post: Film Review

I love Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks separately so having them all collaborating on a movie is the dream, not to mention the fact that it is a movie about journalism! This ticks the boxes for me so much.

Steve Jobs: Film Review

I think I am in the minority when I say I don’t see Steve Jobs as some sort of tech God.
