Love and scandal are the best sweeteners of tea. —Henry Fielding

I hate seeing bad films.

Nicotina: poppy, silly, Mexican cine-trash masquerading in this country as clever Tarantino-esque art house creativity.

Avoid this film.

It's even worse when I convince someone else to go see a movie and then the movie blows.

This is Diego Luna's third movie this year, and the second film this year that I have seen just for Diego Luna.  Nicotina sucked.  The Terminal was dumb.  And Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights was fucking horrible. 

Luna is still engaging and interesting to watch, but his film choices have not shown much wisdom.  He needs to make a good movie post haste.
