Big Eyes – Movie

Imagine a biographical film set in the late 1950s, that’s a Tim Burton movie and has Amy Adams playing the lead. And then imagine it going totally unnoticed. Nobody knows about this movie and I know why. They didn't market it much Simple! So next time, my author friends, when you think your books are... Continue Reading →

How many of you have seen this Fracture raise your hands? Yep. I know not many have and I think this movie didn’t get the attention it deserved.
