    This might be the nostalgia talking, but I don’t give a fuck.

    I remember seeing this once around the time of the home release via stolen satellite and thinking it was alright. But now...MAN.

    Talk about capturing an era in time. Everything from the fashion (shoutout to the XXXL airbrushed tees) to the cameos (JAZZE PHIZZLE) to the needle drops (from Youngbloodz to Lil Scrappy to Slim Thug to Purple Ribbon All-Stars gets played), mid-2000s Atlanta culture is so wildly…

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

    Paul really jumped from Season 1 Eren Yeager straight to Season 4, jesus christ

  • Roar

    Roar

    ★★★

    I think I audibly said “Jesus Christ” more times in the theater watching this than the average Sons of Anarchy episode. It’s not a GOOD movie, but it’s a horror movie in the truest sense.

    Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

    ★★½

    What was good:
    -A cholo shooting witches with a shotgun.
    -Actually likeable characters
    -A cholo shooting witches with a shotgun.
    -Comedic moments that are actually chuckle-worthy.
    -A FUCKING CHOLO SHOOTING WITCHES WITH A GODDAMN SHOTGUN.

    What was bad:
    -Rip-offs of a LOT of better movies(mainly Chronicle and V/H/S)
    -The twist ending
    -Relies on tired-as-shit jump scares
    -really crowbarred connections to the previous movies in the series(the tapes from PA3, certain cameos, etc.)

    It's probably the most watchable of the series next to the first, but that ain't sayin much.

    Kingsman: The Secret Service

    ★★★★½

    Man....this movie's FUCKING AWESOME. Combine Kick-Ass and the more ridiculous 007 flicks, with a hint of Attack The Block and you get this. A metric fuck ton of fun.

    There's a fight scene (I won't say which one for spoilers, but you'll know when you see it) in here that pretty much combines the chaos of The Raid 2's prison riot, the fluidity of the John Wick nightclub shootout, and the visual punch of Hit-Girl's fights from the first Kick-Ass.…
