02.21.2014

Why do I love movies? Well, that is a loaded question. How much time do you have? I could go into a long-winded diatribe about the art of film-making or the magic of the movies, but all of that has been said countless times before. Not every movie is a masterpiece, but every film has touched me in one way or another. Every other week, we will look at a handful of reasons why movies are so damn great..

Because of the Koreans reconciling with the Americans at the end of BEST OF THE BEST

Edit: QED! That's supposed to say "everyone."
