1) It’s historically accurate
The events in the film actually happened. Martin Luther King Jr. did go to Selma and he did lead a march there. History is important, but it is often ignored. This film does a great job of showing history in an accurate yet entertaining light. It is a film that people of all ages can learn from.

2015 and a Start of Something New…

2014 was a fairly good year overall, if you weren’t a Malaysian Airlines passenger, or Air Asia one for that matter.  A Ukrainian, Syrian, Libyan, or other poor soul made to move along because some ideologue wants to kill another and create a supreme blah blah…. what was I on about?  Oh yea.  Refugees.  The Cold war seems to be reigniting, Ebola is everywhere, it’s dangerous to be a journalist and offensive fascism is beginning to really become part of a mainstream idea.  Kinda feels like shit actually.

Stay tuned!
