    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016

    ★★½ Rewatched 28 Aug, 2016

    Re-watched this for a podcast on which I'll be reviewing the movie soon.

    I looked back at my original Letterboxd review, saw I gave it a 3/5, lambasting the script but praising most of the rest.

    I'm taking a half-star off. The script is really shitty, even shittier than I thought on my first watch. Also, Clark Kent is a freaking bore, or at least this iteration of him is. Smile, goddammit!

    ★★★★ Watched 21 Aug, 2016

    A rainy Sunday afternoon, late in the summer movie season. I had either seen the blockbusters I wanted to or what was playing really didn't interest me (I don't need to see Suicide Squad to be "part of the conversation". There hasn't been a conversation. The whole world thinks it's shit).

Y'all said the same about Ralph and Frozen."

    Frankly, if you walked up to me yesterday and asked if I thought Disney had it in them in the foreseeable future to knock one straight out of…

    The Big Short 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Dec, 2015

    What an odd circumstances under which to watch this.

    In my family we celebrate Christmas on the 24th more so than on the 25th. The extended family has a few places to be over the course of a few days so the gang finds a way to get together on the 24th and we have fun into the early morning until most part ways for other gatherings. There's a supper at my father's the 25th, and I'll be there later…
