    Weird: The Al Yankovic Story

    ★★★

    Parts of this movie honestly were kind of a slog, but I'll never say a bad word about Weird Al doing silly nonsensical stuff. Plenty of fun moments here, and Daniel Radcliffe is great. I'll always love Weird Al.

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

    This movie sucks so bad. Every character exists to do dumb shit that gets us to the last 20 minutes. It's not even fun bad slasher movie shit, it's just annoying. Corey makes absolutely no fucking sense, Allyson surprisingly makes LESS sense. The "disciple killer" concept is interesting and even the pseudo "movie within a movie" concept of Mike Myers II killing those high schoolers is kind of neat, but I hated the execution. The high schoolers' vibes were right…

    A slightly formulaic but impressively weird as hell movie. The scenery is weird, not the plot. The characters do their things among the weird plants an organisms that have overtaken the world. It hits all the beats it needs to, which is great, and keeps from explaining much about the world itself, which I personally enjoy a lot. Good acting all around. I liked it! Go see it.

    Having never seen and not really knowing anything about this film prior to watching it, I was surprised to find that it wasn't set in Russia. In hindsight that makes sense, but still.

    A nice departure from the "future tech" and secret lairs of Dr. No. I appreciate when James Bond is a secret spy and this movie delivers in that regard. I do feel like it just ... ends. There really isn't a villain like we're used to at…
