BJ x3 by wolf

Movies: Free State of Jones

Based on the true story. I was not okay after watching this...but every single person should see this.

-_-

History is horrible...people are horrible. I seriously do not understand people who have absolutely zero compassion in their hearts...sickening. The things people do/have done to other people... The whole thing was revolting. I was either crying or trying not to be sick for nearly the entire two hours.

*sighs*

It's a 10/10 from us. Very well done and painfully honest. Great acting, especially from Mahershala Ali--who is, in my humble opinion, one of the very best actors of our time. I fell in screen-love with him when I first saw him in The 4400 (2004) and he's been impressing me ever since.

Again, a great film, award worthy, but, yeah...extremely hard to watch ('witness' is almost a better word, in this case).

This one was also based on true events...it's been a tough few days!! That ENDING... Geez.

Again, not an easy one to digest. Giving it 6.5/10 because of some poor choices involving CGI (just because you can do something doesn't necessarily mean you should...) but it was an overall interesting story/piece of history. It's from ancient times so that made it 'fun', but only as fun this very sad account could be.
