    Not only the "feel-good film" of the year, but soundly one of the best feel-good films that I've ever seen. A couple years + a week ago, I first saw Amélie and likened the film to a warm hug.

O.G Ghostbusters still has to reign supreme in a franchise ranking, considering its existence and legacy is the entire basis for this film’s culture and character set, but personally, I think I…
