Thursday Movie Picks: Meet Cute

Thursday Movie Picks

So keeping this in mind, I’m bringing you three movies  I’ve seen many times with not just one meet cute but TWO! Because the more the merrier, and the more, the cuter!…

If you don’t want to entire list of this years Emmys go to here. The saddest part is that the best comedy and the best drama TV-show are both totally unfamiliar to me. I should change that and I think I…
