31 December 2015

Saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens tonight for my oldest son’s birthday…so much better than I expected. But after having read articles about some of the body-shaming comments toward Carrie Fisher, I have some of my own comments for (and about) these people. First, were you even watching the same movie?

Comments Off on Reviews Ahead…

Just a heads-up…but have some reviews in the pipeline coming up. One is something like a year in the making (or so, will have to check emails and explain at the time it’s posted), one is new, out-of-the-blue, and another is totally unsolicited, just because I like the product. And if you happen to have […]
