The Darkest Minds review

Wading through a sea of tired tropes and predictable plotting, offset only by the general quality of its cast, The Darkest Minds adds itself to the ever-increasing pile of incorrigibly generic young adult flotsam

Great

Whitney review

Regardless of its sobering themes and unavoidable heartbreaking ending, Whitney is still a celebration of the singer’s legacy
