Brian Recommends

Can you see it? Doesn't he look like Crush on Finding Nemo? Okay, maybe he just sounds like Crush. Read Brian perspective on much more than Nemo. This former REAP staffer (now Jesuit seminarian) has cool stuff to say.

(Note: some movies in this list are R-rated, but I'm an adult. I would advise teens reading this list to never see an R-rated movie without parental permission!)

  • A Time to Kill - A lot of drama and I'm a sucker for movies that are in the court room
  • JFK - another court room drama and it makes you think, but don't take the movie literally

  • Starship Tooper - the worst movie ever made - just dumb
