  1. We are the same yet so majestically different, I could get violent over a few of your choices. Art is subjective, cinema is personally emotive, feelings and outlooks should always be respected and when it comes to preferences there’s no right or wrong — only there is and you’re so wrong about Mustang it physically hurts.

    If it weren’t for your Bi Gan pick, I’d straight-up fight you. 😉
