    Better to suffer injustice than to do it.

    There's a passage in Scripture that has often stumped most who read it. I'll lay it here to start, and if you're already checking out, that's fine, but if you decide to keep reading, hopefully, I can bring some clarity:

    Matthew 10:34-39 (Jesus speaking)
    “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to…

    I heard you paint houses.

    This was a strange experience. My wife was working an extra shift and it was gonna be 3 hours so I decided to bite the bullet. I'd dive into Martin Scorsese's latest 3+ hour gangster epic.

    Not only did I embrace it with convenience, I paused it once to take a break and shower, paused it once to message a friend or two, and finally buckled up to finish it out.

    Then my wife gets…

    The Social Dilemma

    ★★★

    So I was planning to do a write-up for this movie including links to several times tech companies have sold your data without permission, their platforms have been used for murder and social injustice on mass scales, and how they've ultimately been cesspools of evil despite how innocuous they can be.

    I'm such a Dave Wascavage stan. I genuinely enjoy his low-to-no budget aesthetic, I think he's incredibly creative, I think he knows how to have a great time, ("Someone should call the police, or maybe the SPCA!") and I think it's so clear that he understands the fundamentals of film-making even if it comes across as an entire solo-production.

    Thank me later.

    The New Mutants

    ★★½

    I kept thinking to myself, "This is really frustrating." and I think that's because - and I know a lot of people say this but I genuinely mean it based on the films history and the experience of watching this film - there's a better film in here.

    I think this comes down to Disney not caring about The New Mutants (a novel thought, amirite?), but the level to which they don't care is a little bothersome to me. That…
