    I, Tonya


    A less cartoonish BERNIE, which deftly balances comedy and drama in ways which are hard to believe. I was a child when the Harding/Kerrigan incident occurred, so my knowledge of it was limited entirely to what the TV told me. I, TONYA aims to skewer America’s propensity toward intense snap judgments based off of limited/biased information. How easy it is to posture yourself as a moral superior when all you know is the headline. 

    Color me skewered. 

    Margot Robbie crushes…

    Only the Brave


    A solid celebration of of heroism which digs deeper and pays honor to those heroic enough to love a hero as well.

    Great season of true crime tv. Attorney Krantz fucks babies, I just know it.

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice


    Everyone is going to hate this movie. It's got issues (structure, mainly) but the DCEU is loudly proclaiming that it is most certainly not aping the MCU model. This is a big, bold, goofily brooding film that swings for the fences but doesn't quite clear them. But man is it a respectable swing and man does that bat crack (no pun intended) when it hits. I do lament that we didn't get a Man of Steel 2 first, but I was giddy from beginning to end.
