    Hello. I'm a Psychology student at HELP University College. This blog is initially created as a partial assignment for PSY307 Psychology of Film during my last semester with HELP. During that semester, every student would have to write a piece of review based on psychology theories/concept that we'd previously learned on weekly basis. This blog discusses about the application of such concept or the accuracy of such portrayal in these motion pictures.
