Discovering good movies, one bad movie at a time


Acting is very hard work even for people who’ve spent their whole lives honing their craft; it must be unimaginably hard when the whole life in question doesn’t span an entire decade. That’s why we’re using our next episode to celebrate our favorite performances by children: the young actors who go on to become great stars, the one who fizzle out once they hit the ugly part of puberty, the ones who just showed up that one time and blew us all away with a talent that never had a chance to develop. And you’ll never believe what they look like now! (No, seriously, look up Haley Joel Osment as an adult, he looks like a toddler joined ZZ Top).

In Worth Mentioning, we cover Greyhound, 1BR and Strasbourg 1518!
