    It spells cum “come”

    I was going to make that my entire review but the more I think about it, that subtle tepidness is what holds this playful little gem back from really celebrating and sticking the landing with its premise. We hear Hal is a pervert early on but this movie feels a little too afraid of proving it so the cat-and-mouse game of it all falls a little flat. 

    I was pleasantly surprised by how emotionally affected I was by the ending though and it’s such a breezy viewing, all my nitpicky little criticisms will likely evaporate by Sunday morning

    Three Thousand Years of Longing


    Between this, The Green Knight, The Northman, and pretty much everything Wes Anderson has made post-Grand Budapest, the trend of Russian Nesting Doll Cinema unpacking classic stories until we are face to face with the art of narrative itself is in full swing and I’m so here for it and maybe this analysis is pretentious but I don’t care I fucking can’t wait for Asteroid City

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    If you thought Toy Story 4 was unnecessary, boy do I have a summer movie for you 

    This has one of the dopest final scenes I’ve ever seen and the Hollywood satire stuff is pretty funny but the pacing and stakes SUCK. Also, Tarantino and DiCaprio is the most masturbatory pair to ever make a film.

    Tho I really did like the part where USC bragged about their ~35 mm~ copy of the movie but it lost audio like 10 minutes in and they couldn’t get it back so we just watched it digitally

    Joe Pera Helps You Find the Perfect Christmas Tree

    It’s a bit edgier which makes it somewhat less charming than the main show IMO (part of what I think makes JPTWY so brilliant is how he leans away from all forms of shock comedy and resorts to a sweetness combined with the Dadaism. That makes all the thought-provocation every episode brings less cynical). However, it’s still hilarious and you can see the early foundations of what might be the most soul-feeding program in TV history
