Invictus (2009)

Friday, June 25th, 2010

I have been looking forward to watching Invictus for quite some time now. I was able to finally take the time to watch it (thanks to Redbox availability!). Now I am not wholly sure why I was so looking forward to this story. It could have been the intriguing story of Nelson Mandela and the […]

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009
