Quantcast

Kumari Tilakawardane

Kumari developed an unhealthy obsession with The Godfather at much too young an age. Realising she was unlikely to forge a career as a gangster, she turned her attention to the fruitful pastime of studying movies.

When she's not watching movies and generally being pretentious about them, She enjoys drinking tea, making sarcastic comments and watching sport.

    21 Bridges Review

    by Kumari Tilakawardane

    Midway Review

    by Kumari Tilakawardane

    Stephen King's Doctor Sleep Review

    by Kumari Tilakawardane

    by Kumari Tilakawardane

    The Current War Review

    by Kumari Tilakawardane
