The Men Who Stare At Goats

What a delightful and humorous movie. These great actors show such a wonderful, funny side of themselves. We loved it!...

G.I. Shamans

The Brit reporter who wrote the book also accompanied ALEX JONES' highstakes infiltration of the notorious "BILLIONAIRES' SUMMER CAMP" of BOHEMIAN GROVE north of San Francisco a few years ago. Some...

An Insult to our Military

By Aweshucks
I went to this movie mistakenly believing that it was a comedy, and for the cast. I found this movie to be a Liberal Insult to our Military. Based on a "true" story? That may be - but only the...

Very Disappointed

By michaelmuncy
I went to this movie thinking that between Clooney, Spacey and McGregor I would find a movie that would prove to be interesting at least. I was wrong. Big time stinker. I am a pretty avid movie goer...
