A few days ago, the hashtag game #MoviesInReverse was trending on twitter. As most of you know about me, I love a good hashtag game, especially when it involves movie plots. Rather than post all the tweets I sent (@jacobsjj – follow me), here’s a list of the best ones. (And I think you’ll get the idea of the game after reading one or two of my tweets).
