    I love The Grey, Moonrise Kingdom, and Bernie, and had just recently attended a screenplay analysis group that chose Seven Psychopaths as this month’s discussion. It’s good but I don’t love it…

    Nice list!

    I won’t comment on the second film listed.. I won’t, I won’t, I won’t… lol

    We overlap on six out of ten movies on an unconventional list. Anyone might think we were related or something.

    If we were all related it’d make sense whey we never meet for Christmas. lol
