Let’s just get this straight: I fucking love Cloverfield. Growing up I had a big thing for mystery-based sci-fi. I was obsessed with various books on Bigfoot, the Yeti and the Loch Ness Monster, I was a huge Lost junkie, I appreciated Prometheus for its high-concept mystery and I’m currently a massive Leftovers junkie. Cloverfield of course […]

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS is Basically A NEW HOPE

Well. Where to start?
