It’s been 7 years there’s no end of the world, which is a good thing

I'm just glad Twister made the list. Obsessed with that movie

How many times is new york going to get destroyed? It isn't the only city in the world. Plus America isn't the only country in the world. It is getting boring with 80% of films being in America. Some of the best films are based in other countries. Sort your s**t out.
