    Murder Mystery 2


    These films are a lot of fun. They can make a third one. Netflix puts out a lot of garbage. This series isn't garbage.

  • mid90s



    I was a teenager for the better part of the 1990s. As an adult, I find myself more nostalgic for the 80s and 90s with every year that passes. This film hits on a lot of that 90s nostalgia. It also reminds me of how prevalent homophobia was in the 90s, which is definitely not something I look back on fondly.

    I often wonder if I had been an adult in the 80s or 90s, would I feel as nostalgic?…

    The Eighth Day

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

    Some films exist for pure mindless entertainment. Some exist to make you think. Some films can be entertaining and thought provoking.

    This film is sparsely entertaining. That entertainment is usually balanced or canceled out by frustration. Our main characters walk radically different lives. One has Down syndrome and longs for the love of his dead mother. The other, is a workaholic piece of shit abuser whose wife and family left him. This film isn’t saying anything thought provoking. Well, at least…
