Come in and know me better man! Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol like you have never seen it before! Guided by Gonzo Dickens and Rizzo the Rat, we follow the dubious Christmas Eve night of one Ebenezer Scrooge, the grimmest, greediest, undisputed master of the underhanded deed, the sneering, heartless, cruelest penny-pinching, wage squelching money-lender in all of London. On Christmas Eve night he is visited by his former partners Jacob and Robert Marley who warn him of his future…

The reality of it all is that there is not just one Spider-man, but endless Spider-people across dimensions in all shapes and sizes.

The Two Popes

The Two Popes

★★★★

Two influential people calmly discuss their opposing world views in some fantastic locations, using a razor sharp script that explores the past to reveal why they think the way they do, and what regrets they harbor. 

In short, this is the Batman V Superman I would make if Warner Bros. let me.

Stunned, tbh.

Formally apologizing to Zack Snyder for wanting him gone after that dreadful BvS. I'm fully ready for a Knightmare experience, even though it sounds like it's officially over for him and DC. That Flash scene at the end got me real good.

More on a very special 70mm podcast.

Not my favorite muppet movie or even necessarily a great Christmas movie, but I watch it every year and I enjoy it every time.

It has the quintessential muppet songs with silly lyrics and singing muppet vegetables. It has Michael Caine terrorizing muppetkind. It has rats in Hawaiian Luau. All the ingredients for a perfect muppet experience.

Also in this viewing it was solidified in my mind that Miss Piggy is my favorite muppet. I eagerly await her appearance on the screen. Her presence, determined will, and her bravery to confront Scrooge continues to inspire me.

An instant classic that is arguably the best superhero film and one that pushes the boundaries of what can be done in animation.

This is the type superhero stories we need. Thank you to everyone who was involved in making this ❤️
