    If Wilford Brimley very gravely asked me “how long were you alone with that dog?” I would be like, what exactly are you implying sir

    Evil Dead II

    ★★★★½

    As a kid, I’d see Evil Dead II in video stores all the time. I wasn’t allowed to rent it, so I’d just stand in the aisle and look at the VHS art, staring at the weird skeleton guy on the front of the box; he had disturbingly human eyes. For years, I wondered about the skeleton man. “What’s his deal? What’s his name? Is he villain or hero? Does he have a personal life?” When I was 16, I finally watched…

    Happy Death Day

    ★★★½

    ★★

    I have to believe that no one involved in making Eternals actually read the opening crawl out loud during production. That thing got noted to death by forty different people in a Google doc, and then someone just plopped it into the beginning of the film. I believe this because if anyone had actually read the crawl out loud, they’d have realized it reads less like the Bible and more like a legal document. I’m surprised there’s not a footnote in it. Honestly, it’s almost impressive that a 2.5-hour movie whose primary function is to provide backstory STILL needed to open with such a bloated, stage-setting prologue. Druig is cool.
