  • Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    ★★½

    Your enjoyment of Ghostbusters: Afterlife will likely correlate to your feelings on the 1984 original.

    If you hold that film in high regard, you’ll likely view Aftelife as a love letter to a beloved film. If you don’t have quite as strong an attachment, you’re more likely to view this direct sequel as a patchy adventure that relies far too often on fan service.

    I find myself in the latter camp. Afterlife has some fun moments (mostly in the second act) but it’s attempts to stir my non existent nostalgia naturally missed the mark.

  • Eternals

    Eternals

    ★★★

    The most DC-like Marvel film to date, Eternals is structurally messy, overstuffed with new characters, frustratingly heavy on the exposition and too ambitious for its own good.

    Despite all this it still clears a quality bar that DC films have often fallen dramatically below. Nevertheless it’s Marvels least convincing effort in literally years.

    Perhaps it’s biggest (and most unforgivable) crime is that it potentially leaves the MCU in a worse state than it found it. Time will tell.

  • To Be Fat Like Me

    To Be Fat Like Me

    I have not seen the following movies:
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    Taxi Driver
    The Maltese Falcon
    North by Northwest
    There Will Be Blood
    City of God
    The Seventh Seal
    among other classics

    Instead of watching any of them, I decided to watch To Be Fat Like Me. I fucking hate myself.

  • Orange County

    Orange County

    ★★½

    I've never seen a film where every character was perfectly designed to screw over the films protagonist. Seriously Orange County basically consists of a guy getting screwed over again and again.
