    The Little Things

    ★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I watched Peter Falk’s 70s detective satire The Cheap Detective the other day, and despite everything it had going for it like the A-list talent, obnoxious amount of jump cuts and crude screenplay dialogue, The Little Things is still somehow the worse detective spoof. 

    I feel so bad for Jared Leto method acting for half a year to get his wonky stride down pat only to end up not being the killer and dying by one measly shovel love tap.

    Bedtime for the Bride

    ★★½

    The most risqué film of 1896, Le Coucher de la Mariée was so obscenely raunchy that the remaining four minutes of its seven minute runtime have been completely lost to time! It is commonly stated as being one of the first, if not the first, erotic films ever made, but unfortunately us modern viewers can’t see anything past three minutes of a striptease in which a lady removes a thousand layers of undergarments while her husband waits behind a divider. …
