    So confused by all the love this is getting. Felt like an SNL sketch about aging mobsters. And De Niro playing a middle aged hit man was not unlike watching Dolemite do kung fu.

    I will never see the Waynes the same way again. And for that—I am grateful.

    Oof. I know a lot of people loved this one, but I found it so overwrought and overwritten and sooooo CW, which isn’t always a bad thing, but in this case, it was. Like: David Lynch for CW fans? Time is confetti and ghosts are wishes? Too many shitty analogies and someone in the writer’s room had a serious Poe complex. I just wanted them all to shut the fuck up! It’s like they had to pack in every #whitpersonproblem there is: heroin addiction, helicopter parenting, black mold. It was like The Money Pit, but not funny.

    This movie basically predicted the future. It was a sleeper hit for sure and I’ve been recommending it to people ever since I rented it—wait for it—from Blockbusters. So many memorable lines. Mike Judge is a satirical genius. Up there with Twain and Mencken.
