    "This has all of the essential cyberpunk flick elements: corporation taking over society, greed, corruption, dirty urban areas and gritty machines. Without Blade Runner, we wouldn't enjoy cyberpunk flicks today."

    "Thank you Hollywood for turning children's fairy tales into dark and gritty reboot. This was kinda upsetting to watch for me."


Reese Witherspoon was only 20 years old when she took the main role on the 1996 indie film Freeway. On the R-rated movie, Reese plays the role of Vanessa Lutz. In the thriller film, she does a Texas accent which is rather convincing. Playing Vanessa Lutz even helped Reese establish further as an actress to watch out for. Even as Reese took roles in obscure movies, she was already a rising actress since her acting debut in 1991. The very first movie she starred in was the critically-acclaimed The Man In The Moon. On the casting call for The Man In The Moon, Reese intended to audition for a bit part. Instead, Reese got the lead role as Dani Trant. The actress was only 14-years-old when she starred in the film and made a strong impression. Her performance got her nominated for the Young Artist Award as Best Young Actress. Since then, Reese Witherspoon has starred in many movies and shows.

Many may know Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods in the Legally Blonde films. Through the first Legally Blonde film in 2001, Reese gained worldwide recognition. The comedy movie changed the trajectory of her acting career. Reese made a normally hated sorority girl into a well-loved and empowering woman. Many critics praised her for her performance as Elle Woods. Mentioning how comedic and witty her role was. Up to this day, Legally Blonde remains to be an iconic pop culture reference. And all this is especially thanks to Reese Witherspoon's portrayal of Elle Woods. What, like it's hard?

    "OMFG, this was my generation. Some say this was the inspiration of Friends, the tv show. Well, Singles captured my generation, enjoying music, avoiding the corporate life and enjoying freedom."

    "Another lackuster 90s children's film. Kids doing daring adventures with their pals for a mission with typical campy bad guys. Very dated."
