    Not a big deal, but as the only sort-of Tamil person on the board (I think), I feel obligated to point out that the Tamil-language film industry based in Chennai (Kollywood) is distinct from Bollywood, which is based in Mumbai and produces Hindi-language films.
    Just because...
    Snakeskin (Daniel Hui, 2014) warm
    Cloverfield (Matt Reeves, 2008) mild
    A Man of Integrity (Mohammad Rasoulof, 2017) mild

    The last book I read was...
    Narrative Comprehension and Film by Edward Branigan

    I'll never trust Wikipedia again.

    That looks GREAT. But what always halts me from pressing play on Bollywood stuff is rando dance scenes and they always seem to be 158+ minutes long.

    This critique fades with each 2 1/2 hour Marvel film that insists on tedious CGI fights.
    Ant-Man and the Wasp - 5
    Hereditary - 7
    Won't You Be My Neighbor? - 7.5
    The Tale - 8

    Not really. Once you know what you're pressing play on, that's on you if you keep watching these things yet keep complaining. I've watched some Bollywood. That's why I dont keep expecting it to be different.

    I like the "realistic" touch of not having every group succeed.
    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5
