    Be My Cat: A Film for Anne

    ★★★½

    A very original found footage concept. Adrian Tofei is fantastic in this, and gives a performance that is as ridiculous as it is terrifying.

    His vision for the project falls somewhere in the organized chaos of Borat and Hangmen. Super enjoyable watch.

    Cover to cover this movie is fantastic.

    I feel like Harry Callahan is cooler in this than in DH.

    I’m not sure I’ve ever seen it before, but who cares. There’s too many good things to say about this flick, it’s a top contender for one of my favorite 70’s action films.

    Stay tuned.

    Don’t worry we’re getting back into Harry Callahan next week.

    This movie is pretty fucking awful. I used to gobble this shit up….

    Gross Misconduct: The Life of Brian Spencer

    ★★

    Though at times harkening at a nostalgia for crappy TV movies, Atom Egoyan’s Gross Misconduct feels like a conundrum.

    Not a great movie nor a great hockey movie, but an interesting deviation for the director.

    Worth the watch if you can’t find a copy of Hello Destroyer.

  • Dirty Harry

    Dirty Harry

    ★★★½

    I decided out of boredom and isolation to revisit all of the Harry Callahan saga, given I’m a dead ringer for 70’s Clint. 

    Dirty Harry is iconic, but I recall being my least favorite in the series. Though it’s been many years since I saw them all (I don’t even know if I saw them all) I think the first half of this movie is uninspired. Though it’s fair to say that this movie gets much better by the last quarter, it leaves a few too many extra miles on the runway. 

    Stay tuned for more.

    Bo Burnham: Inside

    ★★½

    Before I review the project as a whole, I’ll start by saying that the music that Bo creates for this special is pretty clever and extremely well done.

    As a whole..I guess it’s okay...idk if it was funny...I guess it wasn’t supposed to be, but if I was feeling rowdy, I’d say there’s something off putting about a successful comedian and artist feeding off the isolation we all struggle with.

    While some may find this piece relatable, or sit in…

    ★★★★

    Watching Holly Hunter try to make up her mind about 2 guys for 2 hours unravels pleasantly when she chooses neither and just gets a horrible hair cut instead.

    Fantastic film, especially if you buy Big Bill Hurt’s ego as much as I do.

    North Dallas Forty

    ★★★★½

    Nick Nolte, again, is outstanding. This might be the only good football movie ever made. Excellent performances all around and frankly, this film mirrors issues that the league still faces to this day. A timeless sports flick for a timeless sports boy. What a treat.

  • The Verdict

    The Verdict

    ★★★★

    This film was viewed prior to the inception of this account, but it sits so well that I felt compelled to review it. This is prime Newman, prime Boston court room drama, and available for streaming on Amazon Prime. This movie has excellent build as Newman drunkenly takes on the Boston archdiocese in a skewed justice system. Check it out, loser.

    ★★★½

    The true story of how Steve Furda and I met. Don’t believe his horse shit lies.

  • Hoop Dreams

    Hoop Dreams

    ★★★★½

    Hoop Dreams is like Boyhood before boyhood. An intense documentation of the lives of two young athletes growing up in the shadow of Isiah Thomas. This film is fantastically intense, and shows many instances of genuine hardship from both a basketball and a life perspective. The themes of this film are wrapped neatly with the sobering reality that even if you work really hard, like really really hard, you sometimes just don’t get to be the guy who goes to the NBA. Fantastic film.

    ★★★

    If Alec Baldwin isn’t a dead ringer for Steve Furda, then lightning never struck the ocean, and hope is an ice pond where the glassy exterior hides a bubbling sea of steeping hot regret. Grow up.
