quiz(If you’re curious, my review process. It’s also pasted at the end of this post. I don’t believe in Rotten Tomatoes. I just believe in me.)

acting 8

writing 8


4 out of 5 🐙


I love trivia. I love when vain, evil organizations get exposed. I love John Turturro. He is one of my favorite actors. generally, he is not the lead but I think he absolutely steals every scene he is ever in. He commands your attention. And I don’t think, as I’ve said before, that this can be taught. Whereas, Raph Fiennes, a very talented actor, leaves me cold. I know he is skilled but I just don’t care. So, in a sense, it was good to see him play the bad guy.







(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, effects: cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 🐙, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feeling…not that SW score is scientific…but this one is even less so

(4) ++ This optional section includes any incredibly *brilliant observations that don’t fit into simple quantitative slices like the scores and octopuses *(they are likely NOT brilliant)
