    I want to go rambling through fields at dawn, get my petticoat six inches deep in mud, have a handsome gentleman insult my family in the rain, and break my promise to never dance with him.

    ★★★

    23-year-old Ty Power in his first leading role! Loretta Young having a flip book of George Sanders!! It’s no That Wonderful Urge and it’s VERY shouty but still a goofy screwball newspaper comedy with a great cast including Don Ameche and Pauline Moore.

    ★★½

    “Why, you young little…HEY! You fawn-looking-ass-bastard!”

    I watched half of The K2 literally months ago. Ji Changwook I liked, but Yoona’s acting deeply annoyed me and when it came to the strawberry incident I GAVE UP. Also, as everyone has noted, all the chemistry and sexual tension is between the bodyguard hero and the evil stepmother and I must say, that’s a BIT disconcerting? I did finally finish the series (and it did eventually improve) but not really one of the best kdramas I’ve seen.

    My absolute relief when Tom Hanks did not end up with any of these women!

    ★★

    …was there context for a single shot of this film? Genuinely exhausted by the empty, meaningless visuals. I am still confused about why Oscar Isaac was naked while half laying under a table. My cold, dead emotions remain completely untouched; I couldn’t muster a connection to any of the characters. All space operas are the same. There is nothing new under the sun. Boredom is eternal.
