Ghostbusters (2016)

The misogynistic bile that has followed this movie ever since it's release has been nothing short of disgusting. Yes, fans always kick off when their favourite movie is remade or rebooted but I can't quite remember anything as bad as the reaction to this film for having the audacity to cast women in the leading in a remake of a popular film.

Thursday Movie Picks #103: High School Reunions


I've missed the last two weeks because I've been religiously watching UEFA Euro 2016, which is like the FIFA Football World Cup but for European teams. It's been pretty good, Iceland have done remarkably well and England beat Wales in the last minute, which shut up my Welsh colleagues. I was really smug about it until Wales got further than England after progressing to the quarter finals. England, meanwhile, were beaten by Iceland.

But this week I’m back and the theme for this week is high school reunions. Make sure to check out - http://wanderingthroughtheshelves.blogspot.co.uk/
