    Fast Times at Ridgemont High


    Honestly, a pretty solid coming-of-age movie that embraces the filthy, crappy bits without losing the humour, and in a way that feels more authentic than, say, American Pie.

    Dave Bautista, still outrunning a nuke: “WE ONLY HAVE 9 MINUTES!”
    Also Dave Bautista: *Stops to have heartfelt discussions about love*

    Man, I wanted so badly to like this one, and for the first 15 minutes, I really thought I would. Those opening credits, and the subsequent pitch from the obvious bad guy made for…
