BradWesley123's Movie Journal- February 2015 (34 movies items)

" Crackle- 1hr. 47min. First Viewing A strong film carried by it's authentic emotion and an excellent performance from Brando. Note: My experience may have been dulled by Crackle's obtrusive commercial breaks, which happened about every five or so minutes, then would cut out and last about five minutes."
