It’s the perfect week for the TV show lovers out there! Plenty of shows to choose from; Fringe, Parks and Recreation, Criminal Minds, Person of Interest, 2 Broke Girls, and The Office to name a few.

There are very few things about The Five Year Engagement that are going to come off as a surprise. It’s a studio backed romantic comedy, so it’s got some of the same beats we’ve seen time and time again. The challenge this film had going for it was whether or
A new trailer has been released of the new movie called Your Sister’s Sister starring Emily Blunt, Mark Duplass and Rosemarie DeWitt. The synopsis of the film is: Mark Duplass stars as Jack, a guy coping with the recent loss of his brother. After making a scene at a memorial party,
