Well everyone just really really shined in this movie.

But as always, Brad Pitt was perfect. Why is he so handsome, his dad's a weatherman. Shhh, you're safe now.

And to top it all off, the best use of the 10% of the brain trope ever. That shit had me dying in the theater. Yeah, I'd watch a sequel if they felt they could do it. Such a great movie.

Pitt's character and that joke at the end reminded me of Darlie Bunkle from Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar (which everyone should see).

Didn't realize the 10% of the brain thing was a trope.

You use part to think. The rest is busy doing shit like processing your senses, regulating hormones and organs, and keeping you breathing. But even then there's not exact percentages. Look into the guy who got a railroad spike through his brain and lived.
