Films Worth Watching from 2014 & 2015by phjscott | created - 17 Feb 2016 | updated - 17 Feb 2016 | Public
I watch a lot of movies folks! Most of what gets put out by the studios is garbage. They mostly want to suck a few bucks out of you before you realize you've been bamboozled AGAIN! These movies from 2014 and 2015 are sure fire winners in my book and worth plunking down a bit of your hard earned filthy lucre!
