    Goon

    ★★★★½

    A lot of people have really come to misunderstand what a "himbo" is and have just applied it to any man, particularly one who fulfills certain masculine roles, that they find attractive. I'm not here to do annoying himbo discourse but I am bringing this up here because I want it to be clear that when I say this is a movie about a himbo I mean a physically strong, stoic-by-way-of-stupid, gold-hearted hot dude whose main characteristic is that he's…

    The Climb

    ★★★★

    A full length adaptation of a Connor O’Malley skit. Great portrayal of the norms of male friendship codependency, both the highs and lows (and, implicitly, the potential for positivity amongst the unceasing negativity), through at times gimmicky one-shot vignette sketch comedy moments from the main characters. There’s some great punchlines in the visual direction though, incredible reveals of a camera just panning a little further or pulling out. I wish the writing was a bit stronger, especially in the women (or really most side characters, who are largely women, though the family’s rapidly changing opinion of the fiancée is so so accurate).

The actual film though was dire; whereas the original Space Jam has a charm earned entirely by the fact that nobody gave a shit, Space Jam 2 is so thoroughly design-by-committee that it's clear everybody gave a…

    The Comedy

    ★★★★½

    This film has only gotten more relevant as time has gone on. Did you know this was released literally one year before Sam Hyde & the Million Dollar Extreme guys became active.

    Obviously about Gen-Xers but has come to be infinitely more applicable to millennials, raised on a diet of Gen-X snark and sarcasm. Can't wait to see what happens to the zoomers.

    An exhausting, awful, unwatchable film because its so unflinching in making you sit with your own worst jerk-off…
