    Started watching Yellowstone recently and I'm almost through season 1. While I'm enjoying the show, it does tend to get a little bit cringe with the country dialogue at times. Someone will ask a simple question, but the answer will always be long-winded "what do you think?"

    Still tho... highly recommend Yellowstone.

    Yes. And I'll say it didn't totally surprise me because of the over pronunciation but still. It blows my mind how easily these people slip in and out of accents.

    Dude is also one of Matthew McConaughey’s best friends and was in the house the night of the infamous naked bongo playing arrest.

    Cole Hauser is a very underrated actor. Those 2 movies you just mentioned, he has small roles but nails them, very memorable.

    I never learned his name but I ALWAYS recognize him when he pops up in shit. That Boston accent and mean mug just stick out to me.

    But I watched the whole first season of Yellowstone and never recognized him once. The strength of the cast seems to be the best thing about the show. All of these people can really act their ass off.

    I really don't like Beth though, I don't think she's a good actress at all. Something about her just bugs me.

    I didn't know she was British but I should have fucking guessed. So many damn British actors with fake American accents.

    At least from what I've seen, she has the poorest written character. It feels like she's just written to be a "crazy woman" so they don't give a fuck if she does or says something in one scene that is totally contrary to something she said or did in the previous episode.

    But I don't think it's the actress that's the problem. In general all the women on Yellowstone are written kind of poorly. But since there aren't that many it doesn't hurt the show much.

    Halloween Kills might be the greatest movie ever made. I've seen it about 30 times and it gets better with each viewing. I don't normally get erections when watching movies, but when I do it's during Halloween Kills.

    I like it better than Halloween (1978), my former favorite movie.

    I didn't really care for Halloween (2018). Speaks volumes that they made the sequel so much better.

    “Ray Donovan: The Movie”

    It was fine. They did the best they could, tried to tie up the TV series in 100 minutes after being prematurely cancelled prior to their final season. The ending was as expected; if you watched the series, you would have predicted it.

    The TV series started off strong but I lost interest about halfway through for various reasons. The final 2+ seasons were a bit of a chore, my OCD simply wouldn’t let me drop it after committing so much time; I watched the movie out of a sense of duty, I had to see how they finished it off.

    5/10.

    Finally got around to watching Wonder Woman 84 and I have to say, I had heard the poor reviews going in so my expectations were low but I really enjoyed it. I'm sure the criticisms against it are probably fair and I might even agree with them but I don't care. It was a big fun stupid comic book flick and kind of had throwback vibes to the old Superman flicks and felt like a classic old-school comic book story. 8/10

    I wasn't negative to Wonder Woman 84. It wasn't as good as the first one and maybe that was the problem with some people. Plus when negative reviews cloud your judgement that doesn't help either. Which brings me to:

    ETERNALS

    I dug it. Kind of all over the place but it was entertaining and interesting. A couple quality end credit scenes as well setting the table for some wild shit in the future so don't forget to stick around to the very very end.

    New Candyman movie was a flop. 4/10. Felt like I could've taken a dump and not missed anything.

    Took too long and tried to overexplain a very simple premise but I still liked it.

    Agreed. Felt like it took way too long for the story to get going and there's nothing more overplayed than a main character trying to figure out a mystery that we already know. The last few minutes were cool, but overall it was disappointing. The end credits were the best part of the movie though, the puppet stories were very creative and told a better story than the movie did.

    Agree, I enjoyed the end credits as well not just because the torture of a slow-developing plot was over but because it was different. Almost shut it off at that point of credits rolling but I was too slow and then "Ok, I waiting this long, what's a few more minutes?"

    I liked it and watched it again not too long ago. It definitely felt like this was just one of those "setting the table" movies. Like Dune. I watched that and although I knew it was part 1 of X amount of parts, it was dragging ass for awhile.

    Wait until you're like me who's probably seen that movie 50 times and it becomes an obsession. Or don't. I did buy the Funkos a few months back of John Nada and the alien. I'm still waiting for the day I put on sunglasses and see the world for how it truly is.

    Now...did you think the fight scene between Piper and Keith David was good? People say it's the best fight scene ever in a movie. Not just random people, people like me.

    I knew about the fight scene going into it so I had an idea what to expect. It was pretty hilarious. I think it was supposed to be...? Of course, you know I popped for the suplexes.

    Yeah I think it was supposed to be pretty over the top. They pulled out the gutwrench suplex lol.

    I know I was really young when I first saw it because it had just came out on VHS and my uncle's ex-wife was super cool and let me watch it with her. Shout out to her because she's this great artist who was all about the B-level movies and Stephen King. But damn she could draw ANYTHING. We had her draw up some of our favorite Marvel trading cards with no color so we could fill them in ourselves. Never did have her draw me anything They Live related.

    CAM - On Netflix. Don't want to say too much but it's about a cam girl and shit gets weird. Lots of reviewers seem miffed because they need mysteries fully spelled out in the end and this doesn't do that. But I can dig that and I liked this flick. Main actress did well, respects sex work, good psychological ride. 7/10

    Saw the new Ghostbusters finally.


    God was that so FUCKING hard Hollywood? Where was this shit 20 fucking years ago?

    I loved it. Brought tears to my eyes. This wasn't just a loveletter to fans. It was a love letter to EGON. The REAL Ghostbuster.


    Fucking thumbs up. I will watch all the sequels. Bring that shit on.

    I rewatched Toys (1992) the other day. Had seen it in theater as a kid and maybe once or twice after that. Remember thinking it was a bit unsettling at the time and didn't know what exactly to make of it. Upon rewatch I like aspects of it but I can see why it's considered a real swing and a miss. It tries to be a lot of things and pretty much fails at all of them. Its a comedy but its not especially funny (Williams comes across as more annoying than humorous), it's a family film that's too adult/dark, it's a satire but its message is muddled and self-contradicted. The visuals are amazing and the overall surreal vibe is where it shines. I dig weird but it's a shame the rest of it's not at the same level.

    Hey mang don't blame Hollywood this was more about Akroyd and the rest of the guys A-not being on the same page and B-not having a good enough story/script. I think there was some legit bad blood between some of these guys. Either way, it was great.

    Damn at first I thought you meant The Toy with Richard Pryor lol. Toys was weird as fuck. It was always on after school on like HBO or Showtime when I was in middle school. It's definitely a movie of the times and even then it was a little too weird for the early 90's. I looked it up, it cost about 50 million to make and only pulled in half that at the box office. Also-- Jamie Foxx's first movie as well. This was right around the time I started getting this weird thing for Joan Cusack. This movie and Addams Family Values.

    Ever played the game on Super NES? Just as weird lol.

    Joan Cusack on Shameless was by far the best part for the seasons she was on. An absolutely looney toons sex addict with OCD. Should have done a spinoff with her as the main character.

    My wife's grandma was visiting and she wanted to watch Cry Macho.

    It was terrible. I love Clint Eastwood but he's too old to still try to act.

    Dwight Yokam wasn't much better.

    The missus and I finally got around to watching the latest Bond flick, No Time to Die, over the weekend.

    I thoroughly enjoyed it. Daniel Craig is my favorite Bond actor.

    @Melly and I just got back from Jackass Forever. Had the theater to ourselves and had an absolute hoot and a half.

    I watched I'm Thinking of Ending Things this afternoon. Quite a ride. Creepy, confusing, intriguing. Takes some pretty sharp turns into the absurd. I could see some folks finding it slow going and boring, there are some loooong stretches of dialogue and it gets a little pretentious I suppose but overall, I quite liked it. Read a few articles afterward to make sure I "got" it.

    I feel bad that it took me until 2 nights ago to finally watch the movie The Prestige. When we did the 2000-2009 best movies poll that was one that everyone but me seemed to rank and rank high. It's on Prime now so I banged it out and yeah it was incredible. 8/10.

    We just watched the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre that dropped on Netflix today. It was garbage.

    It's every typical dumb modern slasher. Feels like they could've taken an already written script for one of those and just slapped in some TCM elements so they could make a few more bucks.

    I enjoyed it. It was too short though. 81 mins. They never really explained what the fuck they were really doing in that town besides just "having a dream" and the characters were about as uninformed as humanly possible.

    Having said that the kills were great the practical effects were amazing and it felt like a chainsaw movie.

    I'd give it a 6.5

    Kills were cool and the protagonists were super unlikable especially the short haired one.

    I watched Scream 2022.

    I saw half the twist coming. The movie doesn't make sense under even the slightest scrutiny and goes the meta route to the extreme but some of the kills were cool I guess. I'm glad I didn't pay to see it in theaters.

    We watched The Lodge last night. Had some Hereditary, The Shining, and The Thing vibes and was a pretty decent creepy psychological ride.

    I'm perplexed how you hated something as awesome as Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022) but thought the awful The Lodge was decent.

    Lodge was good and Texas Chainsaw was terrible. Really all of the Texas Chainsaw movies were awful besides the original.

    Nonsense. The 2003 remake was pretty good, as was the follow-up, The Beginning.

    I haven't seen all the TCM sequels, just the OG (which i love) and the remakes/prequels from 2003 onward. The 2003 remake was alright. I almost walked out of The Beginning.

    I've only ever walked out of two movies. One of the Underworld films but I hadn't seen any of the previous films so I had no clue what was happening, and Cry Wolf, because people wouldn't stop talking. I got my money back and saw it the next day at a matinee showing.

    The 2003 remake had peak Jessica Biel in it, so that was probably the only redeeming part of it.

    I really enjoyed Leatherface 1990 with Vigo Mortenson. The 2003 remake was good too.

    I saw X, directed by Ti West. Really enjoyed it. Didn't know much about it going in, other than it was directed by Ti West. I loved his films House of the Devil and the Innkeepers. Highly recommend this film, especially if you like horror films. 8/10.

    I Want You Back:

    Funny, light-hearted romantic fluff comedy. Two people who were dumped form a pact to get each other back together with the people who dumped them. Jenny Slate and Charlie Day are the main characters working together. Charlie Day was his usual funny self doing his normal shtick of possible self-loathing mixed with sarcasm. This is the third thing I've seen Jenny Slate in and in two of them she's a psycho but she plays it well and was funny. You can predict how the movie ends but it was funny enough to keep my attention. I recommend it.

    The Bubble (2022)



    This movie sucked.

    The concept is solid... they're making part 6 of an action franchise during the height of the pandemic, so the production goes on in a Covid bubble, but the conditions suck and the studio is in the shitter due to the pandemic so they won't let it be shut down so the actors are literally trapped as the production turns to hell. It's a send-up of action franchises, of the pandemic, and the industry in general. It's almost the same concept as Tropic Thunder, but with the pandemic bubble setting instead of the jungle setting. This concept, plus the strong cast and Apatow at the helm, all sounds well and good. Who wouldn't green light this movie?

    But holy shit, the script sucks. Judd, wtf man. I'm fan of him in general but this is just bad writing. Feels like they came up with a good idea and he wrote the script in 5 days and never re-wrote it.

    The acting is not generally the issue here but David Duchovny is notably awful. He seems like he was completely phoning in his performance. Karen Gillan is good (I love her) and Fred Armisen is too. Pedro Pascal has basically nothing to do in this movie so I don't know why his character even exists. Kate McKinnon is not good either... I think she just isn't a good film performer and will continue to struggle in anything other than SNL (though I hope she proves me wrong). Iris Apatow is okay... to Judd's credit, I think she's a promising actor and could rightfully land tv/film roles so it isn't total over the top nepotism for him to include her. She neither steals scenes nor ruins the movie and her character isn't well written (like most) so it's hard to blame her. I did, however, find it hilarious that she was billed second in the credits. She was not the second lead of this movie so putting her 2nd above Duchovy, Key, Armisen and Pascal did feel like nepotism.

    There were some funny moments, but overall this was such a waste of a concept and all-star cast. I wish Ben Stiller had written/directed it instead.

    Score: 3/10

    Yeah, was just considering watching that but then looked at it's IMDB/Rotten Tomato score and opted out. Seems like the right call.

    I've never not seen something, or seen something, based on a critic or other users. There are plenty of films that people say are awful that I enjoy, and vice versa. I think you should check it out and find out for yourself how it is. #empowerment

    Main problem here was that the movie didn't need to be 7 hours long. I didn't check the clock so I'm only going on how long it felt but I just feel like a comedy doesn't need to be like watching Malcom X followed by Gone with the Wind in terms of run time.

    The Northman was alright, but far from the masterpiece I saw some reviews label it as. 7/10

    I did really enjoy Egger's The Witch. Haven't gotten around to see the Lighthouse, though I own it.

    I went back to the 80's last night and watched a movie I had only heard about in passing RIVER'S EDGE. 1987 release. One of Keanu Reeves' first movies. Stars Crispin Glover who I'm pretty sure was channeling the future Corey Feldman in his performance. Dennis Hopper is in it, Iona Skye, Leo Rossi, a few others that went on to have B-movie level success.

    Reading up on it they consider this movie one of the best "teen killer" movies of all time. Even called it a horror movie which doesn't make sense. The concept is a friend kills his gf and the group are torn on what to do about it. Turn him in, help him hide the body, what are some northern Cali hoodlums supposed to do?

    It was one of those movies where after watching it and then reading the praise, I was kind of like "really? They think it's that great?" Pretty sure Glover had already done Back to the Future. I give it a 6/10 mainly because some of the acting was fucking terrible BUT you could definitely see the eventual star power Keanu Reeves would have as he did a pretty decent job.

    FINALLY saw Jackass Forever. A bit of nostalgia, a lot of craziness mixed with gross out and stupidity, and it added up to a lot of fun.

    It was a lot better than the movie my wife made me watch with her. The Lost City. Sandra Bullock is okay, Channing Tatum and Brad Pitt are very good, and Daniel Radcliffe does better than expected as a villain. I think they were trying to remake / rip off Romancing the Stone, but this was light fun fare.
