    Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy

    This documentary makes Ron look like a lovable fellow but 21 women claim that he's a rapist & an LA county grand jury has their back. I watch puff pieces like this after a fall from grace to train myself to be skeptical.
    On a personal note, I'm pleased that I was able to complete my goal of finally watching all the movies that I had at home (as of the start of the pandemic) that I had never seen before.…

    Introducing Jennifer Jason Leigh! Playing a blind & deaf character? She really gave it her all & tried to be respectful but the script gave her an ending with some pretty offensive implications about people with disabilities...

    The key to enjoying this film is to think about it enough to follow the plot but not *so much* that you start to have questions. Take it on faith that it all works otherwise you'll lose a week of your life to making diagrams trying to sort it out.

    Kathryn Newton's really starting to make an impression on me. She's always great but here she stands out in a dual role of typical teenage girl & male serial killer. Fun slasher movie that plays a little w/ genre tropes w/out taking itself seriously.
