Baby Driver (2017)

This movie was stylish as hell. I’ve seen Edgar Wright films before (Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World), but never anything quite like this. This is the story of Baby, a getaway driver who makes his escapes to the beat of his neverending playlist. It’s also the best movie I’ve seen in…
