    13th

    ★★★★½

    Get all your liberal friends to watch this. It’s one of the best documentaries Netflix has put out, and might push them further left ☭ ◕‿◕ ☭

    This documentary looks at the 13th amendment, and the impact it has had throughout black history. There’s typically only one argument I hear people claim and say whenever you bring up black history and the idea that white privilege exists. That’s “blacks make up 13% of the population but commit 50% of the…

    Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

    ★★★★

    American Conservatives are the most hypocritical people in the world and they’re too dumb to realize it.

    That’s my basic take away from Borat Subsequent Moviefilm. It’s an in depth analysis of what a large portion of America looks like now. Sure, it had a surprisingly touching story that I thoroughly enjoyed and a lot of incredible comedy, but it also showed us the amount of cognitive dissonance that has been oozing and boiling up from the Right-wing since at…

    Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom

    ★★

    Marvel vs. DC Comics Ranked

    The DCEU is finally over, and it ended with Patrick Wilson eating a cockroach burger.

    I like Jason Mamoa, he seems like a cool dude, but he’s always just playing Jason Mamoa. Which is fine if your character is a Jason Mamoa type of character but Aquaman is an established entity. Not once in any version of Jason Mamoa’s Aquaman did he feel like Aquaman to me, he felt like his Stargate Atlantis character. He’s…

  • The Creator

    The Creator

    ★★★

    If you’ve ever seen an ”AI are people too” movie and an anti-war movie, then you’ve already seen The Creator.

    It’s kind of like 2023’s ”Oblivion”; visually, it’s absolutely stunning, and if they had an actual writer work with the director it could have been a solid 9/10. I went in expecting this to be more of a sci-fi film in the same vein as Black Mirror or Blade Runner and what I got was mostly just a shooty bang-bang…

  • A Bug's Life

    A Bug's Life

    ★★★★

    Bernie Sanders’ favorite film and the best Pixar film, or at least A Bug’s Life has the best themes; class consciousness and socialism. The ants representing the proletariat, being forced to gather and give products to the oppressive grasshoppers, the bourgeois. Hopper explains, "Those puny little ants outnumber us 100-to-1, and if they figure that out, there goes our way of life. It’s not about food, it’s about keeping those ants in line.” I can’t think of a film to…

    Marvel vs. DC Comics Ranked

    The only film to ever make a bunch of rats eating a giant alien starfish both uplifting and incredibly sad.

    I really enjoyed The Suicide Squad. It really felt like the structure and spirit of comics. Honestly, one of those comic booky comic book movies I think I’ve seen in a long time, in the best way possible. A lot of comic movies are so afraid to be a bit silly, or at least less…
