Entertainment Review August 9, 2012

Posted August 9, 2012 by Lance Cpl. Sean Dennison

Remember Lou Reed? The guy who fronted The Velvet Underground, debatably the most important rock group ever to exist (whatever, Beatles)? Well, he’s gotten pretty bad the last couple of decades.

CRASH

Posted November 1, 2012 by Cpl. Sean Dennison

Anyway, Crash is an easy sell for almost any film buff; the Academy Award winning movie is an ensemble tale about denizens of Los…
