    Ok I think ‘Im done with this podcast. How fucking LITERAL do you have to be with these movie reviews??!! THEY ARE MOVIES. THEY ARE NOT REAL LIFE. These guys effectively take the fun out of a movie by micro analyzing every scene and questioning if that would or could happen in real life…UGGGHHH. Would you prefer a movie where a guy goes to work and its just a still shot of him at his work cubicle for 8 hours? Would that be true to life enough for you? How about a guy meticulously filling out his taxes for the year for two hours? MOVIES ARE ESCAPISM. THEY ARE NOT REAL LIFE. YOU ARE ANNOYING.
