    Squid Game

    ★★★½

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

    Man I thought this started out so strong but a few of the creative decisions in the later episodes left me scratching my head and even rolling my eyes at a few points. I enjoyed the show overall, but it certainly had its flaws. It's sad, be ready for that.

    SPOILERS GALORE BELOW

    This was the movie my wife and I saw on our first date. Last night she rented out a local theater and we got to watch it for our 13th anniversary. What a treat.

    I love any review I find that gripes about the acting or plot or whatever. "tHe SnAkEs WeReNt BeLiEvAbLe!" Are you serious? It's a movie called Snakes on A Plane for crying out loud. It's self aware. It literally does nothing but make fun of itself…
