I am the Deja Reviewer, and I’m here to point out the similarities in movies that seemingly have little to do with each other. You know, those movies that you watch and the whole time something in the back of your mind keeps saying, “I’ve seen this before.” I also talk about bad movies with great music, movies that get better or worse with multiple viewings, forgotten film gems and many other exciting topics.
