Movie Review – Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith

This made Speilburg cry? All I could think was: How on earth did this sticky treacle make that man cry. It just wasn’t that good or that moving. There was too much to mock and frankly, the script was so … Continue reading

Movie Review – Super Size Me

This was a funny movie. Aside from a graphic rectal exam scene I could’ve lived my entire life without seeing, I can’t complain about anything I saw. It was also very informative. The doctor’s visits alone should be transcribed and … Continue reading
