Trust Fund – A Modern Twist on a Timeless Tale

Champion – Movie Review and Recommendation

Well, I really messed up! I was so impressed with Champion and the fact that this was a first film for so many involved.

If you get a chance, you’ve got to check out this movie. Good job everyone!

It’s hard to believe this is a first movie for writers Missy Reedy and Sarah Inabnit and producer Steve Hyland. It’s obvious, though, that they did their homework, studied hard, and surrounded themselves with experienced folks. If this is what they do first time around, I can’t wait to see what their future projects…

Unfortunately, since we were so busy,…
