Seven on the other hand - contraryman on 2/4/17 at 11:55 pm
Is fantastic. Did the double feature after silence and it is still one of the most original and well written movies I remember. Mills and Summerset work as partners/aversaries. Spacey is legit as a creepy killer. Directing is spot on. It could be set today instead of 21 yrs ago. Very original. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

I've been flipping back and forth and ABC in possibly the worst journalism display ever. During the first hour ABC made it seem like the parents deserved it. Unreal. The second hour has been how terrible the kids are. A total embarrassment that it is on. A bigger embarrassment that I have tuned in t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
