Green Book

November 21, 2018
The Synopsis A working-class Italian-American bouncer becomes the driver for an African-American classical pianist on a tour of venues through the 1960s American South.

A Simple Favor

September 14, 2018
A Simple Favor is quite captivating and full of mayhem and psychosis. Blake Lively (Emily) and Anna Kendrick (Stephanie) are well cast as they settle into their expected personas: the latter is cute, predictable, and endearing; the former gorgeous, and captivating. Stephanie is the seemingly [...]

I counted its use 7 times in the first few minutes before the opening credits were shown. I counted a total of 42 utterances in the entire movie [...]
