    The Big Short

    ★★★★½

    Hannah Arendt’s concept of the banality of evil applies here.

    Welp. I’m done with social media horror for the foreseeable future.

  • Unfriended

    Unfriended

    ★★★

    I can’t believe I actually liked this. I guess I have to keep the social media horror marathon going now.

  • Shook

    Shook

    I was going for a social media horror marathon today, and Shook fit the bill, but it sucks. A very long 80 mins that somehow feels longer and crappier as it goes on. The stylistic flourishes in this movie are laughably bad, and every time they happen you stop and wonder why the hell you are watching the movie in the first place.

  • Superhost

    Superhost

    ★★½

    Pretty predictable but entertaining. Superhost does such a good job of nailing down the annoying YouTuber persona that I didn’t really care what happened to the YouTubing main characters by the end.  

    Is it just me or are all Shudder Originals starting to look the same?

  • Vacation Friends

    Vacation Friends

    ★★★

    Didn't think I’d really enjoy this, but it ended up having enough weird funny moments that I liked it. Perfect way to kill some boredom when you don’t want to think too much.

  • He's All That

    He's All That

    ½

    I don’t want to talk about it.

  • Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh

    Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh

    ★★½

    At least the Philip Glass score is still good.

  • Candyman

    Candyman

    ★★★★½

    I know I saw Candyman at some point, but on rewatch I didn’t remember any of it. Wow. So much to love here: the story, the performances, the soundtrack. I can keep going. Very much looking forward to the remake.

  • Spiral

    Spiral

    ★★

    I really wanted to like this, but is just fell flat for me. The first half moves at a snail’s pace, and even when it finally starts to pick up it just doesn’t get any better.

    I need more queer horror though.

  • Sandy Wexler

    Sandy Wexler

    ★★★

    Around 25 years ago I was like “holy shit! Aaron Neville has a face tat.” Now that shit is common as fuck, but his OG tat is so much cooler than anything today.

    The raccoon scene was pretty funny.

    A finger or something appears in one of the limo scene shots, which also happen to be some of Rob Schneider’s best scenes in years.

    Everybody hates this, but it struck the right note with me tonight

    It’s really long though.

  • Her Deadly Sugar Daddy

    Her Deadly Sugar Daddy

    ½

    Another Lifetime movie with the “light it up like there’s no tomorrow” song, which may be the worst song ever.
