Captain America: Civil War

May 6, 2016
“Captain America: Civil War” is an action-packed thriller with the good guys fighting the bad guys and -- oh, by the way, the Avengers fight among themselves, too! Therefore, the title "Civil War" is quite appropriate. William Hurt plays Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross and, following some [...]

A History of Violence

September 23, 2005
This film should have been NC 17 in my opinion. It was so graphic in the sex and violence areas which really ruined the film for me. What could have been a somewhat interesting plot became secondary in scope and importance to the showing of soft pornographic sex scenes and gruesome violence. I [...]
