    Captain Fantastic or: A 100% Accurate Depiction of Egg MacGuffin's Life If He Had Children.

    "What's cola"?
    "Poisoned water."

    I love this film.

    There's not a weak moment in this entire film. Every scene is a classic.

    I'm not saying I want to see it happen, but if football dad and golf dad were buried alive, the world would be an objectively better place.

    Prescription Thugs

    Why are the sickest, most unhealthy people I know always the most medicated?

    "They need the drugs because they're unwell, dumbass!", I hear you say.

    To that, I say, "Well, if they're taking all those pills, why aren't they getting better? Isn't that the entire fucking point of taking a pill - so you're not unwell anymore?"

    This is why horror movies aren't scary anymore. No ghost or monster or creature can compete with the abomination that is the Unites…

    ★★★★

    Finally, a movie that understands the absurdly thin line between horror and comedy.

    ★★★★

    Hugely watchable and consistently entertaining. The film makes tremendous use of practical camerawork, sets, effects, etc. It's a treat for the eyes, and a reminder of how great and how *real* movies used to look before they all turned into video game cut-scenes.

    And yes, I watched a Christmas movie at the end of March. What of it?

  • License to Drive

    License to Drive

    ★★★

    Not sufficiently developed, particularly on the relationship front. Would have been more enjoyable if it wasn't so creepy. Down the shirt photographs of a blackout drunk girl? It's amazing how people 30 years ago thought a scene like that was okay. You don't think times change that much over the years until you watch some random 80s teen comedies for perspective.

    Can't Buy Me Love

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    On the contrary, money *can* buy love, considering their relationship would never have developed if not for the $1,000.

    X-Men: Days of Future Past

    ★★★★½

    Not a whole lot of Rogue in the Rogue Cut, but there are some other scenes that have been shown in their full length, which I feel adds to the story. Rogue, however, doesn't add anything. It makes sense why she was cut from the film - it's a better movie without her.

    The Jungle Book

    ★★★

    Not too bad, but I long for the day when movies look like real life again instead of video game cut-scenes. These visuals are good - both creature and environment - but they are not a replacement for reality.

    "But Egg, you don't even know what was real and what was CGI."

    That is true, however, not because the CGI is so great, but because movies make real life look shittier so it can blend with the non-real CGI. The…

    This movie is better than I remember, and I remember it being a fucking masterpiece.
