The State of Flix

The films of today beg for unbiased and casual review. Too often are the ratings skewed for every reason but the purpose of them. To rate a movie for how it is. For the love and passion put forward by the actors, director, and film crew. Too often is this hard work overshadowed by bandwagons and corporate greed. Nowadays, most don’t want to feel alone on an opinion. Luckily, you might just have a family here to stand with.
