    ★★★

    I don't know if the kid was creepy or just a smug little a-hole.

    I do know that I respect how they kept the movie low-key. It seems plausible that the kid could've done what he did.

    Having said that, when it was finished I did feel it was just a bit underwhelming. Well made but could've used a little more punch.

    ★★★½

    There's pleny of gross-out humor in White Coats (aka Intern Academy), but it's also not in the same sphere as your average vulgar comedy. That's due to SCTV comedy vet Dave Thomas, who wrote and directed the film. His honed comedy chops are on full display here. Thomas gets how crucial timing is to comedy. He also has the ability to shift tones and to make us interested in these characters. There also must have been some research done on the daily proceedings at actual hospitals. All this, plus an affable cast, make for a much better quality comedy than one might expect.

Being how things are in the U.S. at the moment, many of the reviews for Dragged Across Concrete have quickly devolved into a childish game of alt-right (racist) 4Chan shitbags vs. "triggered"…

    An Alan Smithee Film: Burn, Hollywood, Burn

    Because I'm more stubborn than an anti-vaxxer, I refused to listen to the universe who collectively shitted on this one-note, stale cracker of a movie. The premise—in which a manic director (Monty Python's Eric Idle) loses control of his film and won't take the mandatory screen credit of Alan Smithee because his name actually is Alan Smithee—sounds more like the set up of a throw-away Steven Wright joke than the plot of a full-fledged film.

    As everybody has pointed out,…
