    Parasite 120419 @ The Loft Cinema:

    Even better the second time around. Love this film & everything about it. Also, Song Kang-ho should be in everything.

    Swiss Army Man 120319 on Netflix:

    Weird is good, but weird for the sake of being weird is bad. This is so weird in the way it tries to be weird and what it's being weird about that it came back around to good weird. Everything around the weird is great, too.

    Paul Dano & Daniel Radcliffe were impressive, and I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would after the opening scene. It all comes together in a much nicer package than expected. Also more fart jokes than expected.

    The Report 120319 on Amazon Prime Video:

    I’m a huge mark for these types of films so I probably like it more than I should. What’s the encompassing term for these (This, Spotlight, Big Short, etc.) - historical fiction thrillers? Sounds dumb but so is The Washington Post’s β€œaccountability filmmaking.” Love this shit anyways.

    Adam Driver is fantastic & makes the relatively dry plot points better. You can see how the final product was constrained by time/budget reductions.…

    Game Night 120119 on Vudu:

    Hilarious. Script was super funny & all the cast & acting performances were great. Best were Jesse Plemons and Rachel McAdams. Constantly funny jokes with plenty of one liners. Plot was perfectly stupid. All of the movie & line references, editing, & cinematography were fantastic. Loved it.
