    "Who doesn't love a good drama right? Well, how about a good drama that's also mixed with a little history? That's what I loved about All The President's Men. It details the Watergate Scandal that we all have come to know, but does so in an eye-opening, easy to understand way you won't find in other places. The movie has an A-list cast, great dialogue and keeps the suspense well even in this very popular tale. I thoroughly enjoyed the film and even learned things I never knew about this horrid tale. It'll keep you entertained from start to finish!"

    " It best describes the assassination in a great reality.it was what re-opened the fight to have the presidential assassination files made public--to the extent that they were. I'm sure I will watch this again at times. It's well directed, Kevin Coster is excellent in his role. It's a good way for anyone who still wonders about the assassination to spend a couple of hour sit .Best movie to watch"

    "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington is an old school classic film about politics. It certainly shows its age however, many of the themes found here are quite timeless and it holds up reasonably well."
