    Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen

    ★★★

    I don't know why money seems to kill coming of age movies. Can anyone enlighten me as to why that is? Because, let's face it: We all know that this movie would have been a beloved, timeless piece of indie filmmaking art, had it been made by a bunch of kids with no money, on consumer grade equipment.

When Brad Pitt was about to fight Bruce Lee, he excitedly exclaimed "Oh no! He's gonna do it! Amazing!" and…

    BoJack Horseman Christmas Special

    ★★★★★

    The Christmas Special is the only episode of "BoJack Horseman" that I haven't watched.

    After watching the finale, my girlfriend and I had a giant, un-ironical, two-day fight about whether the finale was good or not.
    That's how seriously we take the show.
    Because that's how good of a piece of art it is.

    After coming to an uneasy peace-treaty regarding our opinions about the finale, we wrote down our top ten episodes and re-watched those over the course of…
