    Tell Me When

    ★★★

    What she wrote you in that letter… people like her don’t come into your life every day. When they do, we don’t let them go.

    It’s been far too long since I watched a cheesy Netflix romance, and Dime Cuando Tú seemed sweet enough to satisfy my desire. The storyline is pretty straightforward, but paced terribly — it’s carried through by some decent performances and a lot of clichés. A central plot-point of the movie, which explains the purpose for…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    You’re right, Ben. Some things you can’t forget… but you can fight to make them better.

    No words will ever be able to convey the amount of love I have for Star Wars. It’s a franchise I have continually found comfort and enjoyment in, which I believe will continue for eternity. Therefore, Obi-Wan Kenobi was always going to be a smash-hit for me. It’s full of references and call-backs to the prequels that just work so well, without ever overshadowing…
