April Showers May Bring Flowers

by Michelle C. The last few weeks have been an odd mixture of winter and summer. There was one memorable day in which I was outside, jacketless, early in the day and three hours later it was snowing. How are we supposed to plan what to wear or what activities to do? I could be […]

A24

By Grant P. I saw recently that Disney was buying 20th Century Fox. Aside from the prospect of the greatest film of all time, this is not great news for movie fans.

Genre Movie Challenge

By Grant P. & Michelle C. Your faithful film bloggers here at Sno-Isle don’t always agree on what makes a good movie. Sno-Isle collects 15(!) different film genres and Michelle and I have decided to select a film to suggest in each genre and … we are going to watch 3 films from our opposition’s […]
