Not available to stream anywhere, nor on blu-ray. I'd go as far as exceptionally good. The garage scen...

The first thing is to make far fewer of them. Everyone routinely ignores them because they're ubiquitous and overwrought.

General rule of freezing units of things. Freeze them without letting them touch during the process. Use a sheet or a plate or something, or use wax paper between stacks of things.

Does anyone have any experience with vacuum sealing baked goods, specifically cookies? Currently the cookies I make only last a week before they start getting hard and stale even when kept in a sealed Tupperware bin. So this means I need to make a batch every week.

Baby Driver is a really good movie, but not for what usually makes a movie good. The plot and story goes completely off the rails and blows up. But the look and sound of the thing is astonishing the first time you experience it.
