Tim's Review

Acrimony is up there for me as well. It was one of the best movies of the year. I predict an Oscar as well, that's an official Oscar pick

Tim's Review

This is based on the video game Ready Player One and this is a Stephen Spielberg joint. It's one of his best movies, I think, since E.T.
