Free Fire

90 minutes long, and “Free Fire” is mostly about bullets and dialogue. So much of that and the dark scenery goes on for so long that you start to grow weary. I’m just glad I didn’t see it at night…. Read More ›


I was having a pissed-off day yesterday with some criticism I don’t like to be directly told to, train schedule conflicts, and all the pouring rain wetting my shoes. Later that day, I saw “Colossal,” an Indie Sci-Fi film, and… Read More ›
