And JJ's Work
I watched the only movie Netflix shows when you type in "JJ Abrams" and I wasn't impressed with what I saw. In fact, I was bored. This does not bode well. The movie is Six Degrees of Separation and it was about Will Smith playing a gay con man who was just really disturbed. It doesn't actually have what I might call an ending of any kind and it was basically just kind of dull.
