The Outsiders Movie Review By Francis Ford Assignment (Movie Review Sample)


the task was about a movie review by Francis Ford.

Imagine you are a football fan, and two big games are happening on the same day, same time. Think of an England Derby Match and a Spanish Derby Match. How would you feel?
