    Oh the depths we have fallen to. This franchise has come so far, and not in a great way.

    Everything about this is poor. The acting is utterly lacking and one-dimensional with no depth. The story is the most ludicrous (Ludacris?) it has ever been, with stupid action scenes and pathetic and nearly incomprehensible reasons for particular character's presences.

    Requiem for a Dream


    As of this review, I have 12 films that are rated as a 4.5 star (the highest on my rating scale). 11 of them have a heart beside them to indicate I enjoyed them quite well. Only one does not. This is that film. I do not like Requiem for a Dream. At all.

    To clarify, this film is absolutely magnificent, hence why it reaches the highest echelon of my rankings. I respect and admire what it achieved and do…
