    The best part was walking back home from the cinema. I’d forgotten how nice it can be to walk through the city at night, especially in the summer. The smell of green foliage, walking past groups of kids laughing and gossiping about who’s going out with who, cooking smells and more laughter coming out of the student accommodation building, the waft of scented candles from a window not far from home, two children looking out, chatting about the things children…

    In Los Angeles, a gang of bank robbers call themselves The Ex-Presidents commit their crimes while wearing masks of Reagan, Carter, Nixon and Johnson.

    All I want to know is, did Gerald Ford know about this film? Did someone tell him about it? Did he go see it? Was he sad that none of the surfer bank robbers wears a Gerald Ford mask? When, later in the film, they kidnap Keanu and force him to go on a robbery with…

Meaning that I would have probably preferred it if the film was not a film at all, but a…

    I'm glad the cow got to spend a few nights each year sleeping under the soft glow of starlight.

    I was blown away by the sheer look of this film. But, thinking about it now, I’m not so sure about its take on monobrows. Tom Cruise sports what looks like his natural monobrow in this, and because his character is good, natural, and authentic, this suggests that we are meant to infer that monobrows are good, natural, and authentic as well. But then, when the forces of darkness give Princess Lili an “evil” makeover in an attempt to corrupt…
