Exam week is drawing near, and for most students, that means "binge" studying in an effort to absorb all of the material taught from each and every one of their classes. Yikes.

For this reason, I advocate for what I call "selective question testing."

But despite the 2017 movie presumably being targeted to a demographic whose first notion of Christie’s work is not “oh, that’s from the space-bug lady,” I ended up enjoying it immensely.
