The James Gunn who, immediately after getting fired by Disney, got offered to make Suicide Squad 2 and then a few months later got re-offered to make Guardians of the Galaxy 3 and regardless would have been perfectly fine because he’s a rich and successful director? That James Gunn?

But my god, Audrey Hepburn is glorious in this film. Even playing a self-involved dilettante (at least in the beginning), when she throws that wide-eyed smile at the camera... well, let’s just say I fell in love forever the first time I saw it and the passion hasn’t died away in the decades since.”  Read more

Among my top ten favorite movies--twisty plot, charming performances, and a perfect balance between comedy, thriller, and romance.

Thanks, it’s almost a relief to be aggravated by a shitty comic book movie reshoot for a couple of seconds rather than...[impotently gestures around]

But, again, so what? Are they really so worried about what internet randos have to say about their fellow movie star friend that they feel they personally have to intervene? Barely anyone was aware of any of this except for the Extremely Online and insecure celebrities.
