After all, the two of you haven't spoken in months. Why emerge from the woodwork now? Did she really like Game of Thrones, or was it rather your attention that she sought, and succeeded, to garner?
We've all seen it happen: A popular film feels pressured to produce a sequel. This pressure to produce a script results in inevitable failure. I mean, who hasn't said, at one point or another, that sequels are never as good? That being said, 22 Jump Street has broken the mold.
In 22 Jump Street, how cool would it have been for Channing Tatum to fall for the female equivalent of Jonah Hill: a normal-looking women with smarts, wit and kindness? How powerful would that message be for girls who don't look like a model, but who do have a lot to offer in relationships?
As the dragon racers fly by, the audience is introduced to additions like an all-you-can eat feeding station, an aqueduct for putting out fires quickly, and a dragon armory perfect for tooth replacement or making dragon helmets.
After I saw 22 Jump Street, I noted publicly that, while it was funnier than 21 Jump Street, so was my root canal. (Although the latter did include laughing gas.) Still, the bar wasn't particularly high.

Gloomy, claustrophobic and haunting, Richard Ayoade's second film, The Double, has been described by some as a dark comedy, a label that leaves Ayoade scratching his distinctive head.
Why is it that some guys seem to have it and some guys don't? One guy in a t-shirt and jeans could seem to be dressed better (though more casual) than a guy in a suit and tie.
This year's crop of best acting nominees in the lead and supporting roles somehow manage to represent the archetypes of every person you've ever dated. To wit...
Bad title. Instead, Philomena , played by Dame Judi Dench, should have been titled something like, "They're Taking Anthony". This movie is: a mystery ...
Their picks. (My deletions.) My picks. Not all that different. Except where they are extremely different.
The Wolf of Wall Street did not create or endorse the corrupt culture and lifestyle it depicts, but simply pulls if from the shadows and puts it on display. If this inspires people to follow Belfort's example, the issue isn't the film.
The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) Cast includes: Leonardo DiCaprio (The Great Gatsby), Jonah Hill (Moneyball), Margot Robbie (About Time), Matthew McCona...
