    Creature from the Black Lagoon

    I think this is the cooliest looking Univeral Monster. Somehow that suit can appear menacing, goofy, or sad depending on how it's framed in the shot. Breathtaking.

    I can't help but wonder how many times the actors nearly drown while underwater in the suit.

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

    The sound design was creepy and disinate in an original way. The smiles seemed sinister, but they gave them all away in the trailer. There was a couple of jump scares that felt lifted by the appearance of the ghost from Ringu. The haunting device was It Follows with a face lift. Now I have to get into the spoiler part.

    This movie was clearly about mental illness and trauma. Parker Finn doesn't bury the lead; he holds your hand…

    I vividly remember watching the NBA in the 90's and 00's and recognizing with all my basketball friends that:

    1) Superstars got all the breaks
    2) Referees tried to make sure that series went to Game 6 and 7
    3) Certain teams like the Bulls in the 90's and the Lakers in 00's had the referees swallow their whistles when the series were on the line

    Tim Donaghy turned witness and revealed these three things were true, WHICH MOST FANS COULD SEE! Now I watch this doc feeling equal parts validation and frustration.

    I'm convinced Diana would have been much more happy in her life if she stopped having avant garde jazz and dissonant classical music follow her everywhere. No wonder she was so excited when she played Mike and the Mechanics!
