Universal Healthcare-Healthcare for EVERYONE!

So as you know, I've recently watched the movie, "Sicko", an eye opening movie by Michael Moore which talks about our corrupt healthcare system, and most importantly how we, the people can fix it.

I found a website where you can sign a petition to get this bill passed called HR 676
which is (in a nutshell) guaranteed healthcare benefits for everyone in the entire country. No more private insurers, no more going bankrupt because of your medical bills!

We can't just continue to sit back and wait for others to take action. Take a stand and we can all make this happen~

Please at least take a look at it and I hope that you will sign. I just did. Just click on the link below:

Sicko Movie Review


I watched this movie last night and already want to watch it again! I found it to be a startling eye opener, one that should be seen by everyone. I cried a lot through the movie for the people that died because they were denied their life saving treatments from the insurance companies because for example, cancer treatment was not a "medical necessity". There is even a C-Span clip of a woman who was a Medical Reviewer for Humana admitting that she had probably killed several people for the sake of profit and she just couldn't do it anymore and was compelled to admit her mistakes on television.

Not only that, but Michael Moore sends you to a few different countries where people don't have to worry about whether they can afford their medical treatments or not. Places where medical care and pharmaceutacals are FREE. After watching the movie, I wanted to move to those places. The people were happy and lived longer than us Americans.

I also recommend watching the special features for even more heart wrenching stories and more countries with free healthcare.

please, watch the trailer and go rent or buy this important movie:

I give this movie 10 out of 10, a must see.

IRON MAN: Movie Review

iron man

I just saw this movie last night in theaters and thought it was FANTASTIC! This is the latest movie in the Marvel series about a rich man, Mr. Stark, that is head of a weapons company. While on a promotional trip overseas, he gets captured by terrorists that try and force him to make the ultimate weapon of destruction for them.

Of course, Mr. Stark has other plans which in the end lead him to his destiny of becoming Iron Man.

there's some twists that I wouldn't have expected but it make the movie so intense!

If you watch this movie, don't forget to see the special scene after the credits roll, you'll get a sneak peek at what to expect for the sequal.

This is a movie not to be missed! I give it 11 out of 10 for being beyond awesome!
A must see!

Semi-Pro Movie Review


This is the latest movie starring Will Farrell, which is usually one of my favorite actors.

It's about a basketball team that is about to be eluminated because, well basically, they suck. So they step up their game to win their spot in the NBA with few funny moments.

Quite frankly, I thought the previews for this movie was funnier than the movie itself and I felt it was a waste of my time to see it.

I give this movie 1 out of 10 rating for failure to make me laugh and I don't recommend it.
