    this honestly sucks to be honest, i dont think its cool at all na di would never want it to be as cool as it is. there are many movies available and they put the 25 worst movies of 2013, i dont think they are good at all. all of the movies suck and some aren't even english. i think they should put good movies next time, or at least maybe good movies next time.
    thank you for listening, but honestly im not trying to be mean or anything but these movies suck. i dont care if you have hate for me but it sucks and you cant do anything about it.
