Brooklyn (2015)

Well finished Brooklyn as part of my quest to watch all of the nominees for best picture. It was nice. The acting was good. Saoirse Ronan was very good in the lead role. Domhnall Gleeson shows he is fantastic in everything he’s in. It looked pretty. the story was simple and truthfully not aimed at […]

Straight Outta Compton (2015)

If there was a problem with the story is that the scope was large enough that it was hard keeping track of everyone involved. […]
