    "Shoplifters" (2018) - [9/10] - Day 283 of #Movies365

    If there's one thing I've learned from the "Fast and the Furious" franchise, it's the importance of #family. That family is not just what you are born into in this life, but also who you meet along the way. Dom taught me that. Brian taught me that. And now, writer/director Hirokazu Kore-eda has taught me that.

    "Shoplifters" is about a family - the specific dynamics of which are not made clear…

I remember having three different prescriptions for acne treatment (one pill, one wash, one cream). I remember being in the rain, telling a crush I loved her, and her shouting, “You don’t know what love is!” before running away.

    “Mandy” (2018) - [2/10] - Day 171 of #Movies365

    Boy, oh, boy, was I pumped for “Mandy.” A stylish pseudo-horror revenge movie with Nicholas Cage giving (I was told) one of his best performances in years. I was on board, I was sold, I was ready to sit down and have a very good time. 

    Friends, dear readers, I hated this movie. 

    “Mandy” is one of my least favorite kinds of movies. It’s an overlong, slow, masturbatory exercise in style…
