Indie Movie Review – Werewolf (Wilkołak)

I’m ashamed to say that I know very little about Poland. I know nothing about the arts, the culture, the history, or the people. I once knew a woman of Polish descent, but that would be a bit like me saying I’m of German descent… theoretically true, but practically pointless. All I know for sure […]


Movie review from a history teacher – 1917

As a History teacher, Historical reenactor and writer, I have VERY high standards for movies that claim to be historical or even based on actual events.

Movie Review – Thank You For Your Service

This is a movie that everyone needs to see, especially politicians with the power to make changes to an existing system that’s failing. Of course, I speak of the Veterans Administration. So, heads up to the current administration: with North Korea’s saber rattling — not to mention every other country that’s been offended by the […]
