    I love that the title uses "only", as if this cinematic masterpiece missed out on all of the other Oscars it should have received. 😉

  3. This movie is so awesome, but is so flawed.

    It’s a massive ensemble, a bit of a tangled mess until things gets smoothed out near the end. But before then you have so many, "Wait how the hell did that guy, find that guy, and how the hell do they both know the same things, despite just meeting.." holes its hilarious.

    BUT its an AWESOME movie.
