It's pretty well written but there's a little too much mystery box for me to really enjoy it.

That would be the best sick joke ever. One poster featuring him with the cast and the same one where he's been removed.

Early reviews of A Wrinkle In Time are not encouraging. They're all saying basically the same thing: everything in the movie is Hollywood beautiful and Hollywood platitudinous. I'll see it, of course, but it's sounding more and more like basically DuVernay made a different movie and pasted the title of "A Wrinkle In Time" on it.

Not interested in watching, but anything that drags the Kennedys through the mud is fine by me.

It should be said in Pol Pot's defense that he would have killed many more people if he'd had more people to kill.

If it doesn’t include Bernstein saying “right on!” in the most cringey way possible when a Black Panther dumps a bunch of guns on the table and says some brothers are thinking about a revolution, it’s not going to be complete.

I was around for the original version.

I have no interest in the remake.

That doesn't actually look bad.

Everyone involved should still be killed though.

None of the trailers for The Spy Who Dumped Me looked terribly promising, but this clip really cracked me up:

Call me easy, but a movie with Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively ogling each other and being mysterious sounds pretty dang hot. (A Simple Favor)

Having watched all of this to date I am very disappointed they led with the weakest episode. I do like how there are nods to previous episodes in the subsequent ones (a cereal box with an earlier character, a band poster with another, etc.).
