Musings From the Bench

Winter-vs-spring-2014-joke-comics-hd-wallpaper-quote

American Werewolf in Paris

One movie I have always liked growing up is American Werewolf in London. The effects don’t hold up, but the acting is better than average and the story just keeps moving along, and it even has a bit of a moral question: would you die so other innocent people could rest in peace, or stay …
