Best Movie I Have Seen In Ages!!!!!

Interstate 60

Okay. so I'm on a Gary Oldman kick right now and it is true he is a cameleon !! A couple his movies haven't been that good, but not because of him. So when this one arrived via Netflix I was like okay let's try it.

The boy said he'd start watching it, but don't feel bad if he went upstairs in the middle. He stayed watching it with me the whole time, didn't leave the couch once.

I didn't even want to leave the room to pee, but I had to. This movie was so good you didn't want to miss a second of it.

I purchased the movie today from Amazon. Can't wait to see it again.

Sid & Nancy

I saw this movie last and man was it bit disturbing. Sid & Nancy

It definitely was not a comedy, but I knew that going in, didn't I.

I was squirming through most of the movie.
