The El Mariachi trilogy was definitely worth seeing. Very underrated, and the acting was phenomenal. Banderas accurately portrays a "killer" with a moral conscience and a need for revenge that is...

I agree... Tina Fey's influence and love for Lindsay Lohan's past acting career made this movie. However, Fey wasn't on board at all for this sequel, so I hope they keep up with her humor....

What do you mean?

I didn't say it was the greatest film, or even one of the greats. It is a comedy, and being a 20 year old girl, I enjoyed it when it came out a couple years ago...

Best Bond Movie?

Mean Girls 2

So, Mean Girls may not be an "influential movie of the year" type, but I enjoyed it immensely for being a chick-flick. Although exaggerated at some points, the representations of the hidden agenda...

Ha, no not more than one. But I do know many people from other schools that say the same. It's not hard to know what film schools define a term as. This isn't my opinion.

Yes, it may have a...

In film studies, this is not what conventions means. Unless every major film school in the country teaches otherwise. Can't argue with someone who can't admit they're wrong.
