Movie Review: “John Wick”

Revenge… I have to say. If you absolutely, positively have to kill every [person] in the room, except no substitutes. Seriously though.

Movie Review: “Whiplash” 

“Whiplash” is described by Wikipedia as a “jazz music dramatic thriller,” probably the first ever made of that subgenre.

Movie Review: “The Best of Me”
