Leon: The Professional

by Goat July 29, 2014

I was going through my DVD collection, trying to find some really top-tier movie that my friend had not seen and we came upon Leon: The Professional, a great choice.  It is really hard to go wrong with one of the best movies ever filmed.  To say that this masterpiece is criminally underrated and underappreciated […]
