    Episode 18; We back babyyyyy

    Took a few weeks off, selfishly, cause this boy was makin' a short film (we were cautious as could be, and tried to be intelligent and safe), and we had recorded this almost a month back, but it's finally out, and we back on track on the home stretch toward the mac daddy. You can listen to the new episode on Apple Podcast, ITunes, and Google Play as well as Spotify and YouTube (which are…

    ★★★★★

    Special Episode 2; Arguably the most important movie ever made.

    Black Lives Will Always Matter. Please make sure to fucking do something in this time and take a look at THIS Google Doc which has everything from places you can donate, petitions you can sign, protest you can join, or just general education on the subjects of systemic racism, black history, and everything inbetween. ACAB, and keep fighting people <3

    Freddy Got Fingered

    ★★★★★

    The ultimate middle finger. The evolution of Adam Sandler's schtick, to it's literalization of real-world absurdity. The characters are vile, and their actions bordering lunacy, and yet, Green always finds a way to pull reality back into these scenes/situations, which only heightens the humor. The precursor to the Post-Modern Anti-Humor that feels second nature at this point. A constant awareness that this madcap idiocy actually exists from people giving Tom Green FOURTEEN fucking MILLION dollars to do whatever the fuck…

    Stagecoach

    ★★★★

    Felt pretty mixed on the first hour. Sometimes I appreciated the way it was crafting all the characters to get us involved in their lives, and sometimes it felt falsely forced. That's a design that continued out; simultaneously wanting to marvel at the true blue screenwriting, but being put off by it's overt crafting of the elements. The acting sometimes felt true to character, but often felt large and theatrical, and in this context, off-putting. Claire Trevor, John Wayne, and…

    Buffalo '66

    ★★★★★

    This shouldn't work. It should be deplorable, convoluted, annoying, and pretentious. It should make me feel sick, I should hate this, I should never want to look at Vincent Gallo, and I should wash this away from my life. But I just can't. It just works. It's magical really. Brilliant performances all around, wild stylistic choices, and a moving tale of a horrible protagonist (that you somehow feel bad for (sometimes)) slowly learning to accept, take responsibility, and love. What…

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

    Look. I’m gonna try my best to stay calm, and logical, because I don’t want to get into debates, and I don’t want to just shit on something that I know a lot of people love. Everyone has their own opinion, and I respect that. This was simply not for me. In fact this is the fourth Guillermo Del Toro film I’ve seen, and it’s the fourth I haven’t liked (Pan’s Labryinth (2.5), Hellboy (1.5), And Crimson Peak (.5)). There’s…
