    The Beatles: Get Back

    Watched consecutively over November 25th, 26th, 27th 2021.

    The definitive ending for the greatest band of all times, rewritten in lightning.

    Thank you Beatles for saving my life during my worst moments this year and thank you Jackson for giving me peace. My 8 hour journey with Get Back was one of bliss and peace. Peace of mind and peace to move forward. I will never forget this special event. Peace.

    South Park: Post Covid

    Maybe the most cathartic South Park has ever been, certainly the most consistently funny in a long while. treynmatt have evolved their pivotal show and given it a needed second wind with their adoption of the hour long special format and the time skip (I hope they stay in "da future" for a while, if only so they can keep mining Rabbi Cartman). Oh and who's the one who's obviously obsessed with Blade Runner right now?

    Riveting tabloid trash, a potboiled ham perfect for sharing with your mother on Thanksgiving.

    NERDY MOVIE THEATER RAMBLING: It must feel strange to open up a brand spanking new theater, even in an affluent suburban mall, during such times. Movie theaters are supposed to be a thing of the past, right? Well I couldn't help but check it out, especially after hearing about it for so long at my other hometown Cinemark, which I worked at for several months this…

    Cheap cologne on street trash. Busted for bad luck. Had a hearty laugh when Joe Dirt popped up.

  • Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    "Oh my god, this is worse than I ever thought it could be"

    We are two years into COVID and somehow we are still being punished by the aftermath of the seismic one-two punch of 2015's Jurassic World and The Force Awakens, both inarguably the harbringers of pop movie culture's current demise. The gatekeeper and keymaster of entertainment regurgitation, a form of media conservatism that uses the cuddly label of soft reboot as a cover for a maddening level of…

    Too late for Leto as Mario?

  • Eighth Grade

    Eighth Grade

    ★★★★

    My feelings get more complex, positive with every watch. Amateurness is endearing, perception keen, heart generous. Bo Burnham would do good to make his real movies without him on camera.

  • The Souvenir Part II

    The Souvenir Part II

    ★★

    That awkward moment when you agree with Hogg's caricature of her critics, judging the script for a lack of perception. Perhaps it's caused by the ivy league elitism, or maybe it's just the defensive timidity to it that annoys the shit out of me. Ignore me on these like I'll be ignoring The Souvenir: Part 3D.

    ★★★★

    My Sweet Sweetback review from January:

    "2020 desperately needed an instinctual reaction like this, and we didn't get it."

    Well, who would have thought that Bernard Rose would belatedly prove me wrong, kinda? Before it started, he straight up said "there is no point to this movie", dropping the mic as gently as he could. Well, at least he can admit to it. His film-for-the-fuckofit attitude should have no place in a time of great reflection, but this free improvisation…
