    Snatch

    Filled to the brim with colorful scumbags who still manage to remain likable, Snatch is my favorite Guy Ritchie movie.

    I was right.

    I waited a long month to see Endgame, telling myself and others that it was to avoid the crowds. It's not entirely untrue - I do hate a packed, sweaty-filled theater…
