Movie review burst #2

Anastasia "Ra-Ra-Rasputin, Russia's sexiest love machine" Don Bluth, Gary Goldman (1997) It looks very nice, I like the songs, especially the main theme that comes back several times.

The 100th post!

I am not very happy with my work on the site. I don't spend nearly enough time on programming (because I'm very lazy) and I find writing reviews a bit redundant, I don't think I have interesting things to say on everything I see or play. I will cut down on review articles, and reorganize…
