[FILM REVIEW] Baby Driver

I’ve considered myself a huge fan of Edgar Wright‘s films for some time. Since the release of Shaun of the Dead and with the continuation of his “Cornetto Trilogy” with Hot Fuzz & The World’s End Wright he has created what I would consider being almost perfect films. In only a short amount of time […]
