Things that I am hating: Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde is an absolute garbage film, there I said it, and I am still in disbelief that websites like Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB have it ranked somewhere the C+ range for movies. I mean this movie really sucked, it sucks so hard that I actually forgot I saw it two weeks ago.
