Boy Erased

A few weeks ago my husband and I went to see “Boy Erased”. There were two reasons I wanted to see the film. The first (and largest) is that I am gay man and I am all too familiar with people who believe that being gay is a choice. I also wanted to see the … More Boy Erased

Halloween

I love horror movies. I always have, and I always will.

Both my husband and I thought the nun character in “The Conjuring 2” was the scariest thing in that movie. As a result … More The Nun
