Five Movies I’ve Watched in the Last Two Weeks

I decided to do this a little differently.  I’m going to state two reasons to see the movie and one reason that might persuade you otherwise but probably not.  Then, you can decide if you want to watch them if you haven’t already.  Here…

10 Movies I Shouldn’t Have Watched but Did Between 2000 to 2015

Watch these movies at your own discretion.  I am not responsible for time lost or gained. Hard Candy (2005) was one I struggled with and thought was overall bad from start to finish.  It was casting, story, and pacing all rolled into one.  There…
