Cloud Atlas: Formula for a Turd

    • You and me both, Kris. In some movie trailers they mention that the rating comes from “sex”, “violence”, “language”, and stuff like that. In the future, I wish they would also add “preachy”, “annoyingly preachy”, or even “just way too preachy” to the list of things to watch out for. I really don’t like Hollywood telling me that this or that or something else is important. I’m no genius, but I can figure that stuff out on my own, you know?
