  • Oh I watched 22 July but I couldn't tolerate it because I come from a criminal record and seeing a guy shoot hundreds of children and bombing a building full of people really make people with criminal backgrounds that are reformed now by the way look like terrorist.
    The zodiac is a bad example because it's focus on a serial killer who murdered humans. Now I come from a criminal record and this makes me look like the zodiac. I can't even go out without dogs barking. So I don't watch it.
    Same with all the movies.
