Film Review- The Foreigner (2017) Fair Value of The Foreigner: $5.00. Its worth watching on the in-flight movie, but there’s little that’s memorable about this film. Is This Film Worth My Time? The Foreigner is a taut and engaging mixture of vigilante action and espionage. Its one of the better, more well assembled examples of […]

Navy Seals That Were Crack Addicts: A True Story

Navy Seals That Were Crack Addicts: A True Story. There is just one that I’m aware of, and his story is nothing short of amazing. When you hear this man’s story, at some points you are proud of him, and at other times you are in disbelief of how self destructive he once was and […]

A Tour of Hell: A Review. When I awoke I found myself lying on the barren ground, confused and disoriented. The last thing I remembered was the heart monitor screaming that my heart had stopped in that hospital bed and yet here I was, lying on the rocks in the hot sun, naked as a […]
