  1. I really liked Life Itself. I thought the screenplay was brilliant. I won’t say it wasn’t sad because it certainly was…but “inadvertently hilarious”? idk with film critics anymore, man. they are trying so hard to tell us what should and should not be. it’s up to us shift the narrative and create our own opinions.

  2. Jose Padilla is not Pa-dill-a. How do you pronounce quesadilla? Quesa-dil-a? No! It’s Pa-DEE-a….Dios mío

  3. I thought Oscar bait movies would be the ones that released on from September to December, and you barely listed movies released in those months

  4. I wouldn’t say 12 Strong was necessarily an Oscar bait movie. Sure it was a war movie, but I wouldn’t say all war movies are Oscar bait movies since there are so many war movies, its essentially become its own genre. To me, 12 Strong seemed to simply be your typical war-action movie.
