  • 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.

  • 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…
