Stoner High School Senior’s Life Completely Transformed After Being Convinced To Watch “JFK”

Mind Blown by JFK Movie

High school senior Bobby Leslie hasn’t shared all of his thoughts on the JFK assassination but we are pretty sure he is in support of the “grassy knoll” theory, if you catch my drift,

Corvallis, OR—Crescent Valley High School senior Bobby Leslie, 18, said he wasn’t really into watching Oliver Stone’s controversial film about the Kennedy assassination, “JFK,” when his classmate initially suggested they view it last month. But after watching the film, Leslie said his life has been changed forever, and he knows now it’s his mission in life to see the real conspirators brought to justice.

“I totally didn’t want to watch the movie at first, when my buddy Lee told me what he had brought over,” Leslie said. “But, I mean, Lee was the guy who made me watch “The Wizard of Oz” scene where that munchkin hung himself in the background, and then we watched it listening to Pink Floyd, too, so I had to cut Lee some slack that he knew what he was talking about with this movie. Plus, he brought some mushrooms, so that was cool.”

Leslie said before he watched the movie, he only had a vague idea of who John F. Kennedy was, and had never heard of the Warren Commission or Lee Harvey Oswald. But now he has a much greater appreciation for history thanks to Stone and “that ‘Uncle Buck’ dude.”

“Battleship” Director Peter Berg To Start Filming His Next Movie, “Boggle”

Boggle: The Movie

It boggles the mind why anyone would make a movie about Boggle.

Los Angeles—His big screen adaptation of “Battleship” doesn’t hit theaters until May 18th but Universal Pictures and Hasbro confirmed reports yesterday that director Peter Berg will begin production later this year on his new film, “Boggle.”

“It’s a spy thriller about the solving of puzzles and cubes with letters on them,” said the press release from the studio. The studio said the story also incorporates elements from some Agatha Christie book, the 1954 dud “Destination Unknown,” known in the US as the 1954 dud “So Many Steps to Death.”

“I’m really excited to get going on this next picture,” Berg said. “We had such a blast doing ‘Battleship,’ talking about ‘Battleship,’ even playing ‘Battleship’ between takes while filming ‘Battleship.’ That Rihanna, she’s pretty good at ‘Battleship.’”
