In order to gain space on my web server, I have been forced to remove several sections of my web site.

I have permanently removed the fiction and non-fiction (IMAX) movies, as well as the Live shows. More reductions may be necessary in the future. I've also tried something a little different in the formatting of my latest reviews, Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant, and Four. Hopefully they will be easier to see on mobile devices.
