    You know the bad guy is bad because he’s always abusing his wife and he says things like “I’m gonna slit your throat and cut off your balls then stick your balls in your throat because I love to watch a man try to pull his balls out of his throat as he dies” I’m paraphrasing but I swear to god that is in the movie


    Also Nolan did John David Washington dirty by letting everyone tower over him and make him look short, I guess he kind of is short but Nolan could have given him the Tom Cruise treatment, come on man!

    I enjoyed The Dress Up Gang so much that I held off as long as I could on watching every episode. Finally watched Cory From Beyond and it was hilarious, surreal and full of heart. I hope they get to make more, but it was a great note to go out on

    I don’t really gel well with Rob Zombie movies and this isn’t that different. I like the big, hulking Michael and the brutality of the killings but it doesn’t really amount to much. The opening 20 minute fake out already got me started a little annoyed and the lack of any real fun kills the movie.

I can respect that he’s going for something but it is just not for me.

    I was not familiar with Caveh going into this and now I guess I am too familiar with him. What starts out as a quirky meta look at making a TV show devolves into narcissistic, self destruction all in the name of self absorption and brutal honesty. It’s amazing, it’s more Larry David or Charlie Kaufman than either of them could hope to be, even if by the back half it is more annoying rather than entertaining as the main premise is abandoned in the pursuit family drama and sex. By that point you can’t look away.

    I went into this a bit worried that it was going to be more Happening M Night rather than good M Night. Apparently this movie is a bit divisive but outside of a few goofy things I think this works overall. The shots are very deliberate and off putting and the way the violence or big moments happen just off frame is very effective at letting your imagination fill in the blanks. Like I said there are a couple of…

    So someone you really like comes up to you to tell you about a band, you get the gist of it within the first 15-20 minutes, but they continue in exhaustive detail for another two hours, leaving you to politely smile and nod your head.
