    "Goodbye, young human. I hope you live."

    That particular scene that I'm quoting is the most Charlotte Rampling-like scene that's ever been on film. Even when she's being nice, that woman is only seconds from tearing your throat out with her teeth. It's always been my favorite quality of hers.

    But, anyhow... I didn't intend to give Dune more than a four star rating; it's only half a film after all, but the sheer amount of artistry on display here…

    "Black people don't need to be summoning shit."

    I'm not sure why exactly people seem to be unable to see the good in this sequel like they do the original, but it is an excellent sequel and, furthermore, a wonderful companion piece to the original, unlike the previous two sequels, one of which I haven't seen in a very long time so I won't comment on it. The first at least tried to do something interesting, even if it changes…

    ★★★

    "If you have more than twelve images on the internet, I can send your mom a video of you mouth-sexing a goat. I'm not saying that I'm gonna do that, I'm just saying I could if I wanted to. If I had enough time and enough pictures."

    It was somewhat predictable and the CGI, especially in the scene with the bull was pretty shit, but other than that it was a fun little waste of two hours. I don't know that I'd ever watch it again, but if that sequel happens, I'll probably give it a look.

    "I read the man's résumé and I see cause for concern."
    "He doesn't look like much."
    "No one ever notices the housefly 'til he fucks up a good bowl of soup, Brett."

    Boss Level is the big dumb action movie done up with a nice, little sprig of sci-fi up top to give it some extra flavor. My favorite Frank Grillo is an annoyed Frank Grillo and that's the version that's on display for much of this little romp. He's…

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

    Jake Gyllenhaal is creepiness personified in the character of Louis Bloom. He shares a number of personality traits with a certain Travis Bickle, but Lou learns fast. He does the research. He knows just enough to make himself very dangerous. To the people he works with. To the people he films. And to anyone who might get in the way of him getting his story. Even the story is…

    Exactly what I expected from it. Exactly what I wanted from it. Exactly as it should be.
