Posted: 31st March 2011 by 7ucyClark in movies, review

There are many (many) movies, current and past, that I have not seen, and have not been able to pass judgment upon… but they can’t hide forever. Recently, Lucy and I screened The Bad Lieutenant. “Jesus, Grandpa…” [potential spoiler] Right. First off—this movie falls squarely into the “Jesus, Grandpa, what did you read me this […]

So… this is interesting.

But… I’m actually better than Ok. Because I’m a tourist… I know ‘of’ the characters, I enjoy the idea of them… but I’m […]
