    People get sneaked up on and walloped on the back of the head a lot in this average ‘same ol’ same ol’ middle American, Latino Immigrant persecution story. But it’s worth a sit, eSpecially if youse a Vet

    "If you don’t speak or understand French you might like to get this film with English Subtitles.

    A fine and noble story of a crippled and disgruntled (cheesed off) billionaire who employs a wild and relatively free thinking African immigrant as his PA and they decide to merger. This results in a multi-plexxed outcome and a good good entertaining and poignant film.

    "The Cannibal Clown! A true story.

    Reality TV!! USA!! Good scary and reliable film about the evil cannibal clown John Wayne Gacy who behaved like a normal square Joe—‘un Josef Ordinaire’ and a ‘pillar of the community’. And once again a mass murder death killer was abused as a child!! Don’t abuse your children!!!... They grow into big humans and live longer than you.
