Cruel Summer
3 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I want to be able to see this! I guarantee it's the best pop culture film anyone has ever seen. I wonder if we are ever going to be able to see this. I know this will be amazing because anything Kanye does is better than anyone else is doing. I think it is going to be much better than his Runaway Film. My favorite director is Christopher Nolan, but i bet this movie shits on anything Nolan has ever done. Kanye should direct every huge movie, but society wouldn't allow it, because he is far too good for them. I'm very surprised Nolan is allowed to make movies. Dark Knight Rises is the best movie anyone has ever seen, and then if this movie gets released I think this will be the best they have ever seen. Kanye West is a genius and he is far beyond anybody that is going to read this. If you disagree with me you are an idiot and you have fallen for his trick. He wants you to believe he isn't that good so he can make moves behind the scenes. On a side note Kanye if you ever see this, I hope you put this out for the public to see. I'd even pay to see it. If you don't choose to put this out, I respect that decision too.
