Why do I love movies?

    Oh man, Kind Harts and Coronets? I haven't even thought about that movie in decades.

    That reminds me, I need to catch up with more old British stuff. Especially the Powell-Pressburger canon. If you've never seen The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp you owe it to yourself. I think it's on Netflix streaming.

    It makes me happy to know that I have seen almost all of those movies. I'm trying to think of another way to say it, but I love movies!

    Movie's are amazing! They are the reason my relationship with my girlfriend is working out. We send each other movie quotes constantly. I hope RT Sidequest goes to the Alamo around RTX times.
