The Spirit

I really like going to watch movies with bad reviews – probably because I laugh at parts that nobody else do… let’s see what this ones all about!

Loved it, knew i would – eff rotten tomato reviews, i should start my own ketchup reviews haha.. anyway… my favourite line was ‘why does it smell so dental’!
Love the over the top dialogue, creative and artistic scenes, the red knife, the femme fatale roles and the eye shadow on Samuel L Jackson
