    May feels too early to have a Favorite Movie of the Year, but here we are. I can’t wait to own this and watch it every week until I’m sick of it. 

    Beanie and Kaitlyn are absolute dreams.

    I can't emphasize enough how ~ * I N S A N E * ~ it is that Judy Holliday stole Bette Davis's* Oscar for ALL ABOUT EVE.
    My new hobby is abolishing the Academy.

    Unrealistic, I can't even get one guy to be interested in me, let alone three.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    No other 2019 scene is going to top Charlize Theron negotiating a hostage situation while on molly.
