    Movie News | Ali Gray | 5th October 2013

    Not sure what my favourite bit is: the cluster of presidential force ghosts, the creepy tree/dead spider in the top left or the fact that I can't help reading the title in the voice of Bumblebee Man from The Simpsons. (via IMP)

    Movie Feature | Ali | 11th February 2013

    Everyone loves Die Hard. Personally, I've seen it over three times (four). It's one of those once-in-a-generation iconic action movies that's so kickass you can't help but adore it.
