Ed Wood...........8/10

It's just so weird and funny. Bill Murray talking about Mexico sounds like a movie in itself.

Alt Right: Age of Rage...........7/10

Pretty good editing but it's a subject that is still hot.

Searching.............9/10

Really good mystery. Original way to tell a story.

Perhaps I'm biased? Crime thriller is my preferred genre.
The snells and ruth are both such interesting characters.

There's no accounting for taste

For example I liked the netflix show Insatiable.
It's not as good as the youtube show Impulse but it was similar... and this reviewer lists it as the worst series netflix has made

Meanwhile I couldn't stomach 5 minutes of "F is for family" or "disenchantment" so me and this dude seem to be on completely different pages. then we get to #1 and we're in total agreement, best netflix series is bojack horseman.

There's just no accounting for taste. We agree, we disagree, it seems to have no rhyme or reason.
Dude tears apart insatiable because of the tonal shifts.. like you're not allowed to shift in tone and it's "breaking the rules"

meanwhile one of my favorite films of all time is charade.

Charade is basically every genre that exists
it's horror, it's mystery, it's drama, it's comedy, it's all over the map and it's amazing. life has tonal shifts.

Young Adult - 8/10

Good drama with an unlikable character. You end up hoping she fails and wakes up and she fails but...

Skyscraper with The Rock

3/5

A modern take on Die Hard but this time the building people are trapped in, taken over by terrorists, this time it's a smart building. Unfortunately the villain almost completely lacks screen presence. He is no hans gruber. And the cop is nowhere near as memorable as the cop from die
hard "they're for my wife... she's pregnant" and "welcome to the party pal!" these moments are totally missing from skyscraper.

But it does have some nail biting action scenes. It's not a bad film and die hard is a lot to live up to.

Winchester

5/10

Nerve

6.5/10

First was very, very clunky for a ghost thriller horror.

Second was ok for a PG-13 film. Interesting premise that went a bit "trying to be too clever" towards the end that really resulted in a bit of "shark jumping" messiness with hackers, etc.

The Nun ....................... 6/10

Not as in depth as the Conjuring. Fun if with a group of people.

Sweet Virginia

7.5/10

Well done and directed low-budget crime drama. Pretty well acted.

Interesting was reading the very heavy on page directed screenplay from the China Brothers and then how pretty much none of it was adopted from the page to the screen. The director used his own style and prerogative and it worked out well.

Loved it. It's beautifully shot. Weird. Great manic Nic Cage used just enough. Quite a ride.

Kiss Me First 2.5 stars

A 6 episode miniseries that had enough content for a 90 minute movie.
A very strange title that makes it sound like a romance show targeted at teenage girls.

And instead of a satisfying ending they deny us even seeing the villain on screen and end with a cliffhanger phone call from him instead. It had some good stuff in it but there's too many flaws.

Bojack Season 5

Bojack is prone to breaking the 4th wall a la deadpool but wow at this season. They spelled out everything they were doing and why. Right down to the dramatic juxtaposition of serious depressed bojack and wildly unrealistic and wacky adentures of todd.



Todd creates a sex robot called Henry Fondle that ends up rising to the rank of CEO and sexually harrassing everyone. But that name henry fondle... is there something about henry fonda that i don't know about ?? Or is that similarity a coincidence.

“Upgrade” - a solid 9/10. Production Design was awesome, true gritty sci-fi and the ending though some might feel upset, makes you really think and appreciate the film’s message overall.
