Mercury was Mine was overall, not a bad movie. But I had too many issues with it to consider it a good one.

Each member was a star in their own right. … Read More Seven Sundays: Movie Review

A wonderfully entertaining movie that engages the mind and the senses with just the right amount of stimuli. Thumbs up across the board.

But weeks later, I finally managed to scare up a copy of the movie and surprisingly,… Read More Fury: Film Review
