The Pile of Crap that is Jonah Hill

image link Fandango's FOWC is whitewash and the Word of the Day Challenge is toxic. Let me see if I can write on what I'm fuming about using these two words. I started to watch a movie I've been waiting for awhile to get. It wasn't released on netflix until late last week or maybe… Continue reading The Pile of Crap that is Jonah Hill
