Night School Film Review

1/17/2019
More
RR137 Friday Film Review: Night School WARNING: There are spoilers in this review. The short answer is this film did not blow my skirt up. But it is still worth the watch for its comedic offerings. Any film that is a comedy AND makes you laugh out loud is pretty good in my book. There are some shortcomings in this movie some of which are attributable to my personal taste--well ick factor.

RR134 (Tardy)Friday Film Review: Mowgli Legend of the Jungle Warning: Spoilers Maybe its the migraine medication. Maybe it's what comes along with migraines but this movie did not blow my skirt up. It is dark...darker than the trailer alludes. It has it's attributes and moments. But this is not for children so it's a good thing it was labeled PG-13. I am not so sure that young teens would like it either through. Listen to my spin on this spin of a classic tale. Like, share, comment,...
