    ohhh forgot to review this movie! Great movie, won't lie, it was very depressing and didn't pull punches on showing how truly horrible it would have been to be a slave. Well acted, great plot, very gripping movie. I think I stopped drinking and eating 20 minutes into the movie and didn't realize it until the credits started to roll. Really recommend seeing the movie!! Was great fun seeing it with the group too.

    Know it is late notice, but can't pass up a $5 movie for our members and think this movie looks really darn good. Join me if you can and just remember the movie starts at 7 pm and we like to meet up before going into the theater so be there before 6:55pm - when I will head into the theater. If you are new or I haven't seen you before I will bring a Meetup Sign so you can pick me out.
