The problem is, when I watch a thing, I always bring Jay with me!

I am still alive and I still watch movies. Not sure how else to respond! How's Joe doing?

Okay. Interesting point. The problem is, when I watch a thing, I always bring Jay with me!
I can understand, but I think it's a dangerous thing to praise a movie for something not in the movie. It's fine if you can visualize the scene and that scene is awesome, but the fact that it's not there means that that scene exists only for you. And it creates a false version of the movie. It means "your version" will be better than "my version". And given how often this has happened in recent movies and shows, scenes that would make the story better only existing in the minds of the audience, and how often people defend movies using those scenes, it has resulted in a firm policy on my side. Do not do the writing for the writers. If they didn't put it there, it's not there.
