A Movie Review: A Star is Born

I loved this movie!

The storyline reached reality, and it captured beautiful love scenes along with the horrors of addiction. By showing the tip of the iceberg of alcohol and drug addiction, it saved the movie.  Had they shown the reality in its fullest, it would have overpowered the sensuality of

A Story of One of Two Heroines

The Post is a wonderful dramatization of the repeat performance of our so-called-President. The underlying story in The Post was the Vietnam War and the Pentagon Papers. It’s a must-see for the MillennialZ, who generally might have only heard of Watergate and the
