Two Towers Tips

Go rent Two Towers and watch it. If you haven’t seen Fellowship of the Rings then do that first. This is epic filmmaking at it’s best. George Lucas should bite on the cyanide now because Peter Jackson and crew have raised the bar for movietelling and put his McDonaldland Star Wars Salesmachine to shame. Tip: […]

The Big Lie About Terrorism
