  • The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 2012

    ★½ Watched 15 Dec, 2012

    Last night I was treated to a delicious Dinner and a trip to see the Hobbit. Now I have to be frank I think that with this review I may be turning in whatever “Nerd Cred” I might have had at any given point, If being a “Nerd”, as it stands now a trendy label, means liking bad story telling because “this is nerdy fantasy and you’re supposed to like it” then please take it, I would much rather go…

Even when working at a Jail as a Corrections Officer I was…
