    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

    Everyone else seemed to have fun with this, and I definitely get the appeal, but for every off-kilter moment of over-the-top fun there would follow something either inane or lazy or both. Maybe next time?

    For the record though, Stretch’s first conversation with Leatherface is so confounding and otherworldly, I’ve never seen someone so poorly deliver a nonsense monologue so well?

    I could watch two full hours of Chin Tsai trying on different pairs of sunglasses and looking sullen. 

    The Footloose/Power-Outage scene is probably my favorite moment from a movie so far this year. 

    I'm 4 for 4 on Yang.
