MBTI: Louis Bloom- ISTJ

Posted in MBTI Guardians, MBTI Stuff with tags , , , on 11/11/2014 by Taylor Holt


Another recent creation and possibly Jake Gyllenhaal’s greatest performance ever, Louis Bloom is the type of ISTJ you don’t want to run into.

Movie Review: Nightcrawler

Posted in Reviews! with tags , , on 10/31/2014 by Taylor Holt


Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Riz Ahmed, Bill Paxton

Rated R for violence including graphic images, and for language, Running time 117 minutes, Drama/Thriller/Crime
