    β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Going off of the selfie stick poster, I fully went into this expecting TikTokers vs. the Undead. Even though I was a bit letdown by the lack of Loren Grey pulverizing zombie skulls in sync with Lady Gaga's "Free Woman", like a good TikTok channel, this definitely kept me watching.

    Yoo Ah-in (who I, like many of you loved in Burning) is deceptively good at channeling the very millennial anxiety that makes this stand out from a sea of zombie…

    I'm angry.

    I know it's more than a little ridiculous to be angry about a fart joke delivery system like this but, you know what? I am.

    Dylan O'Brien? More like Dylan O'My-God-I-Didn't-Realize-How-Much-I-Needed-You-During-This-Pandemic-ien

    Hope and optimism are in short supply these days and when someone embodies them as saliently as the ever-lovable lead of Love and Monsters does, it's akin to finding treasure buried in your yard. Okay, maybe it's not exactly like that but when you're constantly bombarded by bleak societal forecasts courtesy of all too real monsters (whether they be spray-tanned or pathogenic), bright, mood-boosting actors like O'Brien in bright, mood-boosting movies like this are…
