(PG) Read the Review||9/20/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanTV Review: Jack Ryan||Jack Ryan might be a hero, but he'd rather be watching Jeopardy. Some viewers might say the same thing. Read the Review||9/19/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDVD Review: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom||It's easy to wonder if this long-toothed, munch-a-man moviemaking template has been dug up too many times. (PG-13) Read the Review||9/17/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

Wow.. this guy knows nothing about movies. He looks to shield anyone who abides by his short-sided attitude from real life. People curse in real life. Not everyone will think like you do (I know.. what a S H O C K E R!!!). If a movie has a few curse words, he knocks off a point or two seemingly just on general principle. What a joke.
