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

    Why you pursue something is as important as what you pursue.

    For those curious, yes, despite having watched the movie not long ago to properly prepare for this paper, I watched it again so this can count as a proper research. Turns out, when you're dealing with an all-time favorite movie, you can seemingly watch it every day and not get tired of it. This in a way, at least at the moment, feels like a culmination of the two…

    (Before we get into this, a disclaimer. This is not meant to discredit anyone that has legitimate criticisms or truthfully disliked what’s presented. This is an in-depth analysis based on my personal takeaways mixed with takeaways I have seen from separate analyses which I agree with.

    Melvin Brother of the Joker

    Such a failure.

    Doug Walker beat Todd Phillips to the punch. Leave it to Doug to make a short film that's about nine minutes long and feels twice as long, plus he makes something that's supposed to be cringey and it goes too far to the point of just being painful and not remotely funny. I think of how this was released when Doug and the Nostalgia Critic was reaching its apex, so there were many nerds who I'm sure…

    ★★★½

    "No one can live without love."

    A precursor to something like Sauvage and its wandering debauchery mixed with the hopelessness and danger of Albert Camus' The Stranger. So, a wonderful way to start a Sunday! This was a roughly hour and a half movie that felt like two hours, but I am mostly going to look at that as a good thing. It's hard for me to think about anything that was said in this, upon reflection, it's borderline a…

    Bo Burnham: Inside

    ★★

    Making a Literal Difference Metaphorically

    I am going to try to be as not mean about this as I can. I absolutely adored Bo Burnham when I discovered him. I cannot remember when I discovered his Netflix specials or how, but I loved them. (what. was to me my favorite stand-up special without a shadow of doubt.) I cannot pinpoint an exact time when I started thinking about it, maybe around the same time when I was having to wonder…

    ★★★

    Silencio, Bruno!

    It's been three star city lately, I guess. No complaints, sometimes three star features are just what the brain needs to get through the day. The top thing I can say about Luca is I like that it takes from a visual perspective a major step away from the Pixar norm. For as much as the storytelling itself is something that relies on convention after convention, the visual palette is always good stuff to look at. As Pixar…
