    Sincerely Louis C.K.

    ★★★★

    Listen, I’m not going to sit here and pretend that being a Louis C.K. fan isn’t complicated.

    Sure, he’s no Harvey Weinstein but leveraging your comedic stature so you can fondle yourself in front of impressionable young comedians is pretty despicable. I do struggle with that, and admit he could’ve helped himself by being a bit more apologetic early on. But I also believe in second chances. I know I’ve had my share.

    One big reason is the personal connection to the setting. Lifelong Minnesotan here, dontchaknow! And every detail in…

  • Apocalypse Now

    Apocalypse Now

    ★★★★★

    Being an asshole isn’t easy.

    But one of the positives is that I witnessed Apocalypse Now on the big screen in an empty theater while 30 people waited to get in to Hobbs and Shaw two weeks after it’s release. Further proof that the vast majority of the modern movie going public are easily influenced poseurs and/or mindless rubes whose opinions are worth judging harshly. And if you blindly take offense to that statement I imagine you’d fit comfortably in…
