    Halloween Kills

    ½

    Guaranteed worst movie I'll watch this year. David Gordon Green has no idea what the fuck he is doing. This throws Laurie and Michael out the window for some half-baked bullshit involving a bunch of characters you couldn't care less about. Feels like they wrote a plot outline on a napkin during pre-production and they just made up the rest as they went. The most incoherent and flawed film I've seen that wasn't taken off the director in post-production.

    Genuinely fearful of DGG tackling The Exorcist.

    ★★★

    Fun little love letter to roadies. I've always known how hard they work - basically give their entire life to the band - but fascinating seeing it in action and hearing the reasons why they do it. I couldn't do it and have mad respect for those who dedicate their lives to making live music the wonder it is.

    Sidenote - I've seen Pearl Jam and they were exceedingly average. I can't believe they have 203 roadies.

    Mark Zuckerberg: I'm not a bad guy.

    Mark Zuckerberg: And the other fifteen?
    Marylin Delpy: Perjury. Creation myths need a Devil.

    To me this film is perfection, but those that dislike seem to have an issue about its accuracy. This quote is almost the perfect response, as if Sorkin expected a tiny backlash and decided to give them the finger. He is a story-teller, why can't he exaggerate the truth in order for a better story?

    ★★★½

    I have been thinking how best to describe Charlie Countryman. I couldn't think of anything that it is easily compared too, so then I thought about how it made me feel. It filled me with the same level of joy and energy that I get when I go to a summer music festival...

    And that is 100% correct. It is sun, sweat and blood drenched. It is a 100 minute acid or ecstasy trip. It is shot through a variety…
