    Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal: The Movie 2016

    ½ Watched 12 Feb, 2016

    Johnny Depp sure can't do a very good Trump impression. The writers managed to make someone who is naturally hilarious completely unfunny.

    They also manage to misuse that whole 80-90s, retro VHS aesthetic and make it totally tedious.

    Problem Child 2 1991

    Not since The Dark Knight, by Christopher Nolan, has a sequel been able to take the concept of the original film and make it darker, grittier and solidly grounded in reality. In the same vein as Nolan, this movie expands upon the themes of the original in every way. Problem Child 2 presents the viewer with a much more sinister, if not outright evil, viewing experience.

    The title alone 'Problem Child 2', is a witty play on the original films…

    If I ever needed proof that movies can be art, this is it.
