Rupert Grint: My CBGB Review!

cbgb icon2September 8th, 2013, 12:39am–While you were still recovering from those wonderful FHM pictures, I was watching CBGB (and yes still recovering from those pictures as well!) as it is now available on DirecTV. For those who are able to get Directv Cinema, you can watch it any time you want until October 2nd. But if you’re unable to I have complied a VERY spoilery review of the movie. It’s heavily Rupert Grint related where I describe every scene Rupert is in. In the rest though I do give an honest opinion about the movie (fantastic) and some of the actors such as Stana Katic, Ashley Greene, and of course Alan Rickman. You can read my (again very spoilery) review here.

I’m willing to answer any questions you may have to the best of my ability. So hit me up in the comments if you have any! And I hope you enjoy the review.
