    What a hilarious film. This may crack my Top 100 Favorites list (when that gets finished). I forgot how funny this was and decided to do a revisit on Netflix today.

    Training Day is one that…

From a visual/technical standpoint, it definitely has that 90’s feel to it. That is one thing that works so well for many people. That style is rarely seen in movies today so I loved the nostalgic feeling I…
