  1. What about Roy Scheider and Jaws. The only reason he was even in Jaws 2 was because he was contracted to be in it.

  2. *Without Keaton’s departure from Batman, we wouldn’t’ve had Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) (for which he SHOULD’VE won the Best Actor Oscar).*

  3. Has anyone realized that ever since Natalie Portman and Kat Dennings leave MCU, the female sidekick characters become more better?

  4. Does anybody know this horror movie? I forgot the title but i can still recall some scenes. This movie is like an apocalypse but like some spirit or the air kills them and i guess music attracts them. Theres this part ( i think the ending) where they all got into a safe place but someone played music and they were all killed. I wanna wath it with my cousins like right now also this is a american movie. I guess 2012 like idkk

  5. Replace Edward Norton with Chris Evans as who wants to be out of the MCU since Norton was never apart of it

  6. Why can’t Americans pronounce Craig correctly? Daniel Craig’s name is famous in itself. Cr-ay-g, not Cregg.
