    Dial Code Santa Claus

    ★★★★

    New York's hottest new club has everything: Die Hard, Rambo, Home Alone, 90s kid mullets, tossed croissants, diabetic comas, the Grandpa from Willy Wonka, excellent miniature work, bad shadow green screen effects overlayed on cool minatures, a dead dog, a dead dog being buried to a montage, multiple montages of a ten year old kid putting on weapons, and the killer in Too Many Cooks as a murdery (and briefly, pedophiley) Santa Claus who wants to play hide and seek.

    Hopefully this sees a VOD/Blu-ray release soon because I want to immediately slot it into my yearly Christmas playlist.

    Discovering that Stewart Raffill also wrote and directed Tammy and the T-Rex is like that scene in Interstellar where Matthew McConaughey is falling through the time dimension.

    ★★★★

    "One man living in this fleabag hotel can lay claim to being one most celebrated losers in modern times."

    Dog Day Afternoon is a fantastic film, yeah obviously, but the entire LGBTQ backstory and subject matter, John's history in the village with the Gay Activists Alliance, this eclectic group of people, and John just generally being kind of a weird, horny, gruff asshole pervert are infinitely more interesting than the film.

    The documentary doesn't really touch on it, but I wonder if 25+ years later the Son of Sam law impacted John and his victims at all.

    And it was today that I learned that Airheads was actually a remake of Dog Day Afternoon.

    The Beach Bum

    ★½

    Imagine being sober while in the presence of a group of friends who are stoned out of their fucking skull and drunk off their ass. They sure look like they're having a blast, but being around them is absolutely exhausting.

    Are all Harmony Korine films like this? There's nothing enjoyable about this film, and I feel like I've wasted two hours I'll never get back.

    ★★★★

    🔸Normal brain: Nic Cage yelling "I'm a vampire!" in Vampire's Kiss.
    🔸Expanding brain: Nic Cage stealing the Declaration of Independence.
    🔸Galaxy brain: Nic Cage having a two minute long uncut emotional breakdown in a bathroom after watching his wife burned alive.

    This is the film equivalent of staring into the Ark of the Covenant or the briefcase in Pulp Fiction.
