    "Like Father" (2018) - [6/10] - Day 282 of #Movies365

    I'm sure you all remember "The Adventures of Mary Kate & Ashley: The Case of the Mystery Cruise." Our favorite twin kid detectives were on a case yet again, but this time, on a cruise ship filled with fun and exciting things to do! Now, the more cynical of us could accuse this outing in the MK&A canon as a mere half-hour commercial for their Sail with the Stars business venture,…

I remember having three different prescriptions for acne treatment (one pill, one wash, one cream). I remember being in the rain, telling a crush I loved her, and her shouting, “You don’t know what love is!” before running away.

    “Mandy” (2018) - [2/10] - Day 171 of #Movies365

    Boy, oh, boy, was I pumped for “Mandy.” A stylish pseudo-horror revenge movie with Nicholas Cage giving (I was told) one of his best performances in years. I was on board, I was sold, I was ready to sit down and have a very good time. 

    Friends, dear readers, I hated this movie. 

    “Mandy” is one of my least favorite kinds of movies. It’s an overlong, slow, masturbatory exercise in style…
