    Third time this year. Because why the fuck not?

    Doesn’t quite stick the landing, but I laughed my ass off. Eichner is a master joke writer but a heavy-handed dramatist. More to like than to not ultimately.

    Hi! SEC Football Fanatic Here! Go Vols! My Black Panther t-shirt is from Walmart. My Champion mesh shorts are from Target. And my underwear is MeUndies. No accessories. 

    I really hoped this would be something, a slice of life I have always only seen from afar, as I declined the pull of Greek life in college, despite its interest in me, and, man! I was dialed into this thing for about 20 minutes. Then, nothing… Then again, hooked on all…

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

    This movie would’ve wrecked me if I had seen it at 19. At 39, I can write this movie’s next scene as it plays. I knew that kid was gonna play “Maneater.” I knew the ending. I knew it all.

    I could bitch and moan about formula this and formula that. But here’s the thing: Calling the “Maneater” scene did not matter. It will be in the running for music moment of the year. Jennifer Lawrence is so attractive, so…

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

    We knew Wes Anderson was a genius. Now we know he knows we know. He’s no longer having Zissou show us his boat, exposing the artifice in the name of exposition and cleverness. In his stage show as film on one side with another drama playing out on the other, he is revealing to us the process of creation, the uncertainty that goes into storytelling, moviemaking, acting, which is especially poignant and itself revealing for someone perceived to be as…

    It’s good to have friends.

  • Interstellar



    Viewed on the shittiest little washed-out tv screen on a charter bus coming back home from a trip to Williamsburg, Virginia, with 40 8th graders. 

    Brief Discussions from the Youths Nearest Me: 

    Me: What’d you think 
    Student Who I Thought For Sure Would Dig It: (awkward smile) (shrugs)

    A Student Dude: W movie. 
    Me: What’s the W stand for?
    A Student Dude: It was good. 

    Me (on the bus microphone): This is the best movie of the last decade. It’s unreal. 

    Five Stars.

    I’m not sure we actually deserve movies this entertaining…and well-made.

    Jason Isbell: Running With Our Eyes Closed


    I mean. I just find it odd that this movie is actually about how weird and insanely hot Amanda Shires is, which adds to the this entire thing feels put on vibe. At the same time, it’s amazing to see his process and footage of his past and studio work. And I’d listen to Jason’s songs any old time and this was a decent reason. Strong curation of his stuff. Dude is good. They are good together.

    Nan Goldin’s cool as fuck.

    All Quiet on the Western Front


    On a technical level, this film is a staggering achievement. It far surpasses 1917 and its gimmicks in terms of illuminating both the devastating realism and the personal traumas of World War I. The cinematography, editing, production design, makeup, sound design, SCORE. All top tier. 

    However, Erich Maria Remarque would be appalled at how his novel has been twisted into such a cold exercise. Why would these filmmakers, from a narrative standpoint, gut the heart and humanity out of such…
