    I'll try to explain to him what his grandmother was like, but it will be impossible.

    Every time I watch this it hypnotizes me into a nostalgia for a time and place I never lived in and life experiences I've never had. It's a movie that makes me want to be a better and more interesting person. I feel like an idiot not being able to find the words to explain why this means so much to me, but in…

    I was going to say I didn't need to cry this early in the morning but honestly I feel like I did.

    This flips between being a legitimately good spy thriller and an actual Looney Tune a bit too often, but by the end it feels like the good outweighs the bad. That opening sequence with Blofeld is pretty unforgivable though.
