    I think I was in love with this movie within the first five minutes. It's one of those great movies that feels like it was made just for me and the fact that most people who watch it probably feel like that is part of what makes it so great.

    I've seen hundreds of films and will see hundreds more but I doubt that anything could ever delight me more than that 360 shot of The Avengers.

  • Grease



    Danny Zuko didn't letter in track for you to say that "Grease" is about a woman changing for a man's approval.

  • A Bad Moms Christmas

    A Bad Moms Christmas


    Seeing as this film was written, shot and released in the mere 15 months since its predecessor's release, I don't know why I was so shocked at how bad this was? Obviously the first film wasn't exactly master filmmaking but WOW parts of this movie felt borderline unprofessional. The film LOOKS horrendous with a bizarre "daytime soap meets porn" approach to cinematography, the story is literally nonexistent (the Bad Moms' Bad Moms show up. THAT'S IT) and most weirdly disappointing…

    Not at all what I was expecting - in a good way. Funny, interesting and surprisingly somber at times; I can see myself revisiting this film quite a bit in the future.

    I can't even think of words to describe the ways I love this movie. Masterfully clever, shocking, nail-bitingly tense, hilarious - the cast is a once in a lifetime cavalcade of awesome and I have no doubt that there are a number of scenes that will be studied in film classes years from now. Definitely Quentin Tarantino's most mature, coherent film and arguably his best. QT deserved the Best Original Screenplay Oscar this year and it is a travesty that Melanie Laurent wasn't even nominated for her performance.
