I enjoyed this book s categories I feel like it really covered a lot of different ground My favorite pieces were on Chica flicks, Go Fish, older women, and Southern movies I think it did a good job reading too much into symbolism It would ve gotten a four with the action and sci fi movie, and maybe the second chapter, edited out.
