    Ali

    ★★★★½

    The first words spoken to Ali in this film ask, accusingly and dismissively, what he is running from, implying a force that is responsible for his action, something that makes him run other than his own will. The film soon makes clear that this is not the case; even when the film flashes back to Ali’s younger days it shows a path of propulsion and portrays Ali as a pure force of individualism that justly and inevitable will achieve independence…

    God's Not Dead

    You know that scene in 21 Jump Street when Channing Tatum writes a bunch of 4s on the whiteboard, says some gibberish, and yells "Fuck you science!" while high on drugs? Well God's Not Dead is basically the 113 minute version of that scene.

    Unfortunately this disproves my theory that any classic film would be better if it included a scene of Vince Vaughn jerking off.
