  • Office Space

    Office Space

    ★★★½

    i had to watch this for english (as an example of marxist class struggles, lmao) so i wasn't really expecting much, but it actually...wasn't that bad. the comedy was a bit dated (i wasn't a super big fan of aniston's character's story arc), but overall servicable, and i definitely laughed out loud at some parts. 

    plus the main guy was super cute

  • Inhumans: The First Chapter

    Inhumans: The First Chapter

    well. that was. Bad. 

    i admit it, i've been falling off of the marvel wagon for a while, but this was just genuinely so terrible that i don't really know where to start. the costuming was straight up ugly (those purple dresses...i think in this case a little bit of creative tampering is necessary, and don't even get me started on the skunk hair), the plot was riddled with holes and inconsistencies, and there was nothin remotely likeable about any of the protagonists. 

    props for filming in hawaii and using local actors as the extras, though.

  • Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

    Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

    ★★★★★

    tli is on some god tier shit

  • Kingsman: The Golden Circle

    Kingsman: The Golden Circle

    ★★★

    a fun, campy, fever dream of a movie. the comic book-influences were very evident, and even tho it had its (considerable) faults, it was just fun to watch.

  • The Interview

    The Interview

    ★★½

    i only watched this for timothy simons and the bitch was only in it for like. a collective five minutes

  • Staten Island Summer

    Staten Island Summer

    ★★★

    i'm a sucker for everything snl, but this movie was...mediocre at best. you can tell it's jost's semi-autobiographical recounting of his well, staten island summers, but there's really nothing new or special about it.

    however, cecily strong, bobby moynihan, mike o'brien, and fred armisen absolutely kill it as the main character's bizarre coworkers at their pool. hell, even colin and casey's cameos made me laugh more than the main plot. a movie chronicling their hijinks would've been funnier than watching…
