Re: Old Shorts

Re: Maybe I'm Just Not Talented Enough...

All omphaloskepsis aside, GucciGhost, take the following to heart; here’s the rest of that old saying:

Re: "Bad" Movies You Love

Elizabethtown is one of my favorite films of all time for its storyline and nothing else, as is The Notebook. Both have good directors/storytellers at their helm, but if Story is king in Hollywood,...
