In our heads, we think either Hollywood has run out of ideas or, that we definitely have to see that one when it comes out. The fake trailers displayed in the movie poke fun of some

    I looked out the window; down near one of the grassy areas that sat on the banks on the river. There I saw him again the tall man with the snapback cap and long jacket.

I threw off my pajamas and changed back into my clothes. I donned my favorite jacket and snagged my keys before slipping out of the apartment as quietly as I could. The wind
