Deuce Bigelow: European Gigolo

Don’t spend your money on this movie. It seemed like it was composed entirely of deleted scenes from the first movie.

Citizen Kane

This was named the American Film Institute’s number 1 movie of all time so I thought I should watch it. It was decent, maybe even good, but I don’t think I would have put it at number 1. Quote from IMDb: “Despite all the publicity, the film was a box office flop and was quickly […]
