Review: Ghost in the Shell (2017) (2D)

Review: Her

Review: Under the Skin

What a haunting and ambiguous experience this was! A mysterious woman drives throughout Scotland seemingly for the sole reason to abduct men. If there’s one thing you should know, I will happily watch anything if Scarlett Johansson is in it, and I will probably be biased towards it too (see Iron Man 2) but despite…
