When I met Nick Dunne, I knew he wanted a cool girl and for him, I’ll admit, I was willing to try. I wax stripped my pussy raw. I drank canned beer watching Adam Sandler movies.

  • Get Out

    8.Get Out

    ★★★★½

    i think it would be easier to pick moments that don't stand out in this if i'm being honest. i might say best screenplay of the decade! additionally, i think film this decade was also largely defined by the horror renaissance which is definitely exemplified by get out.

    You know, ever since we were little, I would get this feeling like... Like I'm floating outside of my body, looking down at myself... And I hate what I see... How I'm acting, the way I sound. And I don't know how to change it. And I'm so scared... That the feeling is never gonna go away.
