Movie Review: The Imitation Game - Decoding a complex man

To my mind, The Imitation Game is the best film of the year: a gripping tale of wartime espionage and code-breaking that also manages to be the character study of an important figure whose contributions have been ignominiously ignored.

Film Review: Time Is IllMatic Directed by One9

Let me start by being completely honest. I won't call myself a true Nas fan.
