    John Wick: Chapter 2 Review

    Friday, February 17, 2017

    Snowden Review

    Wednesday, December 7, 2016

    Oliver Stone knows this world is full of fools like me, which is why he’s turned Edward Snowden’s life into a film with famous faces in it and everything. Having watched Snowden, I feel even more foolish than before.
