Barry Seal, a TWA pilot, is recruited by the CIA to provide reconnaissance on the burgeoning communist threat in Central America and soon finds himself in charge of one of the biggest covert CIA operations in the history of the United States. The operation spawns the birth of the Medellin cartel and almost brings down the Reagan White House. – Universal Pictures

I might be a bit biased here because I tend to enjoy Tom Cruise films but American Made is a blast. American Made teams up director Doug Liman and Tom Cruise once again, if you haven’t seen Edge of Tomorrow please go ahead and see it. This movie is action packed and funny. American Made is filmed in a documentary style way which certainly makes the fact that it’s a true all the more believable and this story is crazy. This film is technically educational since it’s a true story so why not buy it. You might learn something, like how to smuggle drugs.

  • Blu-ray Disc
  • DVD
  • Digital HD
  • Special Features

I'm a recent college grad trying to make my mark on the world. But I have no idea what I'm doing. Anyways I spend way too much money on movie tickets. I obsessively buy blu-rays and other movie paraphernalia, that's what credit cards are for, right? I like anything superhero related especially the MCU, the DC CW shows and I'll tell you Batman v. Superman wasn't that bad. My ultimate guilty pleasure movie is Daredevil. Yeah the Ben Affleck one. Watch the directors cut, it'll change your life. I have a tendency to have man crushes on men named Chris, especially Chris Pratt. My superhero obsession has also led to a gym obsession, I just want to look as good as Chris Evans in a plain white tee. I have a podcast on iTunes called the Deadlifting Dorks, I think we are really funny.
