    The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

    ★★

    I like to think that living in a pineapple, under the sea, has somewhat fruitful benefits. For one I doubt you’d have to pay much property tax, on the grounds that you live in a fruit rather than an apartment or structurally reinforced building. As someone who can’t swim because they forgot how to move their arms and legs in a motion that would prevent drowning, the closest I will ever get to going into the ocean is head down…

    The Other Side of the Wind

    ★★

    Although having passed away in 1985, Orson Welles is still releasing movies in a manner more frequent than Quentin Tarantino. If that’s not a testament to the impact of Welles' work and how much of an auteur icon he has become, we don’t know what is. Quite genuinely his final piece of work ever, The Other Side of the Wind was released on Netflix to rave reviews from critics and fans alike.
