It's been forever since Demi Moore has been in anything worthwhile.

I don't think I would be leaving a world where everything is structured and people are happy. They were nuts to leave in the first place. Gimme the happy pill, I'll take it right now. lol

I hated the book. Won't watch the series. Maybe I'm just not refined enough to enjoy some of the classics, but this one was really painful for me to push through.

While this doesn't sound spectacular, I do love me some Joseph Morgan. He's the only reason why I watched The Originals!

I once watched Ben Hur just for him and wasn't disappointed - tons of shirtless even nekkid scenes.
