“Crack: Cocaine, Corruption & Conspiracy”

7.8

The beginnings of the “War on Drugs” explained. The beginning of many of the societal ills that we are now reaping what we had sewn at this pivotal moment in American history. It was equally shocking to see what transpired and how we handled it. It’s always a painful pill to swallow when you can see how little the human race learns from history and how much we walk in a big circle, acting equally if not increasingly shocked with the results of our often flawed ways.

Government often creates many of the problems it “comes to the rescue” to solve, and most of the time rushing things and acting on emotion is the worst strategic alternative. This felt much longer than its runtime, but in a good way. A great deal of quality information and storytelling packed into this one. Well worth a watch.

2020 Wrap – Sweet 16 + 1

It was a weird year. Thankfully, there were still enough movies to fill a year-end countdown! A newfound love for the drive-in theater, and even more scouring streaming than normal led to a really interesting 2020 lineup in my movie watching this year. Huge thank you to all of you, from all over the world, who visit my page to check out a random guy’s thoughts about movies. Can’t wait to see what 2021 has in store, and to continue to grow the page and connect with even more of you! Cheers!
