    Year’s first rewatch! Hadn’t watched this with other people in ages.

    If you’re looking for a great movie, this ain’t it. If you’re looking for the biggest-budget CGP Grey video ever to walk people through the urgency of the climate crisis and the obstacles to solving it, I find this effective.

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that a sympathetic male character in possession of a dead pregnant sister must be entitled to at least four homicides.

    The daughter seems fine at the end. I guess this happens in the alternate universe where PTSD doesn’t exist.

    I honestly watched this whole thing just to hear the “particular set of skills” line in context, and it was worth it. On the whole, this is the best kind of bad movie, which are good to take in from time to time as a cinematic palate-cleanser.
