Films in 2015: Modern Movies in May

Fury portrayed the harsh truths of being an inexperienced young soldier during World War II; Unbroken portrayed the POW experience; American Sniper takes on modern warfare, through the tale of the United States’ reported deadliest sniper, Chris Kyle. I can appreciate the … Continue reading Films in 2015: Modern movies in January, Part I
