    Pretty fun! Delivered on the promise of the title adequately. They should not have had Mike Colter say "mon capitane" in a French accent though. That plot point was unnecessary. But if you watch the trailer and think "Sure, I'd like that to entertain me for 100 minutes" then this movie is 100% for you. Would have been JCVD if this was made 30 years ago.

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

    This is either an advertisement for the film industry or an indictment of it. I can't decide which and neither could Chazelle. He either loves movies or he hates them. Hollywood will chew you up and spit you out or make you a lifelong lover of the artform.

    I found this largely insufferable. Robbie's character rode "I'm from Jersey, deal with it" from the cradle to the grave with almost no arc or change whatsoever, making her neither protagonist or…

    Finally got around to rewatching this. Feelings are largely the same as before. Great movie, third act doesn't quite hit as good as the rest, Greig Fraser is a god, Colin Farrell actually is REALLY impressive, Paul Dano is way more interesting here than in the Fabelman's.

    ★★

    I have no nostalgia for the show, and I barely remember anything that happens after season 3, so I'm not the target audience for this. That said, I thought this was pretty lousy. The writing is REALLY tough (it's really bad in Wolf Pack E1 as well. Maybe that's a Jeff Davis issue...). I still really like the characters from the show and I don't think any of them were very well served. It was mostly the writing and plotting…

    This movie was a lot. Like a LOT a lot. I have a lot of thoughts I'm struggling to reel into a cohesive review so here's as much as I can get out...

    I didn't hate the experience of watching Blonde. It first presents you with a 166m runtime (daunting) and a description that touts itself as a "reimagined fictional portrait". This hung over the whole movie for me. I know Marilyn was troubled and was used and abused until…

    The Fouke Monster was literally just looking for a cool hang then these people started shooting at him and ruined everything, SHEESH!

    This was presented in sort of a faux documentary, Unsolved Mysteries format and while that is an interesting approach, I found most of The Legend of Boggy Creek dreadfully boring especially early on. There…
