the mirror or the picture?

Do you ever think you look amazing one night and then look at a picture from said night and literally cringe at what you see?  I’m not talking about looking at a picture from the 80’s and wondering what you were thinking when you got that perm…  I’m talking about seeing yourself in the mirror one way and then seeing a picture of yourself in a completely different way.  205 more words

Dog Rescuers Should Make "The Drop"

I don’t pretend to be a movie critic; I’m a chained-dog rescuer, a warrior for the rights of chained dogs, and often solely a paper pusher trying to keep a nonprofit animal rights organization afloat on any given day. 722 more words

The Drop (2014): The Most Complete, Well Paced Thriller In Years

Overall Rating: A

The camera’s constant, voyeuristic flow; the tension-setting tonality of the score; the healthy mix of rich dialogue, brief asides from the plot and revealing monologues; not to mention the telling aging of a puppy:  1,207 more words
