Movies I watched in May 2019 (24 movies items)

" Date: 5/8/2019 Viewed: In Class First Viewing Note: First time seeing this movie and I enjoy it. I really like the drama and the humor that the movie had.

The movie is worth checking out."

Not to mention when Secret And Lies ended up being nominated for multiple Academy Awards. Yep, when it com"
