    Ali Wong: Don Wong

    Baby Cobra is like the pinnacle of the genre for me, like perfect storytelling and setup, and hilarious the whole way through. I don't find Ali Wong to be as funny in this special. She's bought into her own hype a little too much maybe? There's definitely funny moments, but it's a lot looser and messier and could have used more honing.

    Memoir of a Murderer

    ★★★★

    I wanted to watch "Memories of Murder" directed by Bong Joon-ho. So I searched for it on Netflix and settled in. Got through the whole thing before I realized I had, in fact, watched an entirely different Korean movie called "Memoir of a Murderer." I feel tricked (those names are way too similar!!), but at least this film was pretty fun.

    What an interesting premise. Serial killer vs. serial killer - who will prevail? So many mindfucks from the main…
