Dunkirk Review – Part 2

Well, it’s like dBaseII, there never really was a dBaseI and look how successful it was in destroying the sanctity of the concept of 3rd-normal data. This review, Part 2, will likely destroy the sanctity of the concept of the film review. The reasons are simple. I have no idea […]

Dunkirk – Review Part 1

This is a first ever. A review on SloWord. A review of a movie. So lets get started. With some preliminary chatter in this Part 1 of The Great New World of Reviews. On a Friday evening in September, with the eminently unwelcome autumn imminent, I arrived at Streetsville GO […]
