This is how it's done
12 April 2005 | by (.) – See all my reviews

This is a movie for teenagers. If they make more like it please let me know because I couldn't find anything today, I'll keep looking tomorrow. (THIS PART BECAUSE I HAD TO MAKE THIS LONGER??) (ok I started watching it several months ago and just finished it, maybe because I didn't want to read the subs or I've seen too many movies that start this way or better. The movie makes no apologies and neither does Daniel Lee. Again, if anyone knows more movies like this please let me know.) (OK I HAVE TO WRITE MORE STILL) (...maybe Siskel and Ebert made a mistake when they added the thumbs-up-thumbs-down parts to the reviews when people asked 'should i see it or not??' I think it was a really bad idea because reading more about the movie that you don't know you wanna see or not is a good exercise in academia and all people who watch movies should read really long reviews before...hand)
