    Sometimes this movie makes me feel really small and sometimes it makes me think I can smile at the oncoming world no matter how big it is. Today it made me small.

    This year I got married and experienced all the joy that comes from spending your life with someone who is perfect for you. We've also been continuing to work through problems with our relationship, small and large. Right now she is in Oregon while I'm in South Korea…

    FINALLY! I feel like I should run around and yell Eureka or something. I kept watching Lars' films because I could see the level of artistry in his work, but I couldn't enjoy any.

They managed to be despicable and didn't give off nothing that I could feel with them.

    On the flip side of that same coin, it loses a lot of charm from the show after its opening act. They…

    I wanted to love this so bad. I've had it on my watchlist in anticipation for like a year. But it just made me want to cry because this actually happened except it was a hell of a lot less funny and I'm sure there weren't as many feel good moments.

    The jokes were indeed hilarious and the kids were very cute, but I just struggle emotionally with laughing when a German child is told to run at the Americans…
