Sentimentality done right. Me Before You trailer promises the movie will be as good as the book #MeBeforeYou

“Me Before You” sounds as if it would be sentimental: a paralyzed young man, a fish-out-of-water girl; classes clash; yada yada yada. But it isn’t maudlin. It’s saved by an authentic voice and characters that aren’t annoying. I’m not one

Those oddly sexy moments of “Let it Go” weren’t just stereotypical, they were an example of how even a few weak storytelling moments or visuals can take viewers out of a story.

#PacificRim: Excellent summer popcorn flick…#kaiju, #mecha and #echarliehunnam, #idriselba and other male warrior eye candy…
