Back by vaguely popular demand, is the most irregular and most effusive feature to ever grace the internet: "5 Good Things To Look At"
1. Mild Fantasy Violence

My talented friend Gus has an encyclopedic knowledge of excellent films from the 80s, it was on her recommendation that I watched Mermaids starring Cher, Bob Hoskins and Winona Ryder.
