Home Run – Movie Review

I was privileged to see a preview of the soon to be public movie, Home Run. For those of you who are considering seeing it, I offer my review. I promise, NO SPOILERS. I will proceed with the same three measuring sticks I have used in the past to try to judge the merit of […]
