I get like that whole "I wish there was more" feeling when I think of my favorite movies, Specifically American Beauty, but for him to bring a completely random unrelated movie into the mix to try and explain his reasoning makes absolutely no sense and I call shenanigans.

At least with American Beauty I have the original script to back up my reasoning for a wish for more

Ohhh, never mind. I cannot read.

I get the argument, too, but to apply it to motherfucking Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, come on? What did he want, to see Wonka find out Shia's his son and have a jungle adventure?

I did like Indy IV, too. Good experience both times I saw it, albeit for different reasons each time.

Sorry, I need to start quoting more, I have this bad habit of randomly posting and just hoping you know what Im referring to. I meant the boy who compared Wonka and Clockwork Orange, simply because he wished there was more to Wonka?

Oh, OK. He was a moron anyway.

Or I just can't type. Which is true. Sometimes it makes sense in my head, and when I read it back, I realize I am making serious mistakes in the realm of grammar, and, more specifically, commas

I can only cite one movie that I've seen in the past few years where I really was like "that was too fucking short" when it ended, and that was "Good Night and Good Luck". Sure, when you love a film, you want more of it, that's natural...but this film just felt like it ended too abruptly for me.

Willie Wonka decends into Atlanta, Germany, for a glass of Powerjuice.

He brings up comparisons in most of his reviews, which always irks me. I can see comparing a film because of its director, writer, or actor's body of work or similar film, but to bring up something else entirely is ridiculous.

My reviews weren't the best either, so I deleted them and only write ones that are worth showing people.
