    TIM BURTON MARATHON #4

    Oh look, it's the movie from my profile picture. This one's going to be another very long and personal review.

    I haven't seen this movie in a long time and I feel like it was the perfect time for me to check it out after how much I hated Burton's Willy Wonka remake to the core last night and how much I adored Beetlejuice recently when I finally saw it.

    I saw this movie about 10…

    Going to AA when it becomes realistically available in the maritimes because I'm fucking sick of this shit controlling my life. When you've been getting paid more to essentially sit inside your apartment and get shitfaced while your partner goes out to be an "essential worker" and serve the public while she gets the whip cracked at her for taking more than 20 seconds to jot something down in her notebook, it kind of digs at…

    Had to rewatch this as soon as possible after yesterday.

    I totally understand the hype and I feel like this is one of those important movies you should show your kids to give them a perfect example of why you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. I love all of the grandfather/grandson bits in this to pieces. I think almost everyone who walks into this movie for the first time is in Fred Savage's shoes in this. Like, maybe…

    You fucking people thought Gotti was a meme?

    Give this a few months to be the laughing stock of the internet. I seriously couldn't believe what I was watching as I was seeing it.

    If it weren't for "The Haunting of Sharon Tate", this would be the worst film of the year, but it's simply too entertaining for me to put it lower than that offensive dumpster fire.

    This is gonna be John Travolta's "Wicker Man". A masterpiece of garbage.

    I think "tasteless" is the only word I could use to describe this.

    A genuinely awful movie from start to finish and might be my worst of the year so far.

    Watching Once Upon A Time In Hollywood twice this week and then watching this was like getting punched in the face.
