    Don’t You Forget About Me


    Hello everybody! This week I was able to watch the movie “28 Days Later”.

    To be completely honest, I absolutely hate zombie movies. Like really hard. So this movie, with its pseudo infected/zombie, was not my jam. However, I did like the story behind it and the premise …
