Favorite Quote: 

"Happiness is not a sustainable condition."

Will Henry: Everything is going to be okay.
Charlie: How do you know?
Will Henry: I don't, but it just helps sometimes to say that.

Review: 

People Places Things is a charming and witty movie presented with deep characters. Most of all, the film is very real in which a father deals with handling his former love leaving him, all while improving himself for the better to move forward. 

From the filming in New York City, which felt genuinely authentic, to the depth of the characters, People Places Things is a great watch. What puts the film over is the work of Jermaine Clement who is very funny with witty and sarcastic lines throughout film. 

An interesting and quick watch considering the 1hr and 25 minute run time, I recommend giving this a watch. 

Grade: 3/5

2. Kianoush Rostami - The earthquake that rocked the Iran/Iraq border was devastating. Yet, here is Rostami giving up his prized possession of an Olympic gold medal to raise money for the relief effort. Much respect. 
3. WWE War Games - In a more light-hearted "Up" this week (we need that from time-to-time, no?), the WWE's Survivor Series weekend was just fantastic. But man, so much props to everyone who put work into Saturday's NXT show, as well as the return of War Games. That match was so awesome. 
3 Down
1. Rob Moore - All I will say is this - it's bad when even something such as sexual assault is now becoming a topic and a driving force for identity politics. Re…
