    It really doesn’t get better than this for holiday movies. Chris Columbus really decided to make like 4 holiday movies in a row and bang out this master piece.

    Macaulay Culkins casting was a miracle. The kid was so funny and talented for his age. Even revisiting this now at an older age (like every other year), it’s nice that they put thought into actually making this story plausible. The jokes are smart and funny, the vibes are nothing but…

    A great send off to Craig and the Craig era of Bond. While yes, Rami Malek’s villain is most definitely the weakest part of the movie, it’s not terrible enough where it tears down all of the major highs that this movie otherwise hits beautifully. 

    The Bond era has been rocky to say the least. Having just gotten myself engrossed into the Bond universe over the past couple of years, Craig has been the catalyst. This movie isn’t Casino Royale,…

    You’re lying to yourself if you don’t think this movie is funny. It’s no cinematic masterpiece by any means, but I genuinely think it’s on par with Sandlers earlier stuff.

    Almost all of the Happy Maddison gang are back, and it’s pure nostalgia. We get to see these life long friends shoot the shit, up north at a beautiful cottage lake house. The best part, a lot of the jokes are genuinely hilarious. Yea you get some fart jokes and pee jokes here and there, but man there’s some really great stuff in between. 

    8/10 for Rob Schneider and an arrow in the foot.

    I can’t believe this was supposed to come out in the latter half of 2020. This was a long time coming for me and everyone else, and in Dennis Villineuve fashion, it lived up to the hype, and then some. 

    Considering I had only read the first 50-60 pages of the novel, before deciding I wanted to experience Dennis’ vision first, my knowledge on this world was minimal at best. I genuinely think this is how audiences must have felt watching…
