    Chekhov’s dead battery? Cool.

    Chekhov’s wall mounted sword? I’m with it.

    Chekhov’s gun? HARD no. The rule of threes need not apply to Chekhov - one is more than enough.

    If the phrase “The best defense is a good offense” was a movie. Satirizing something… I just don’t really care what.

    [watched at AMC Burbank with a fun group who dug this a bit more than me. Entertaining, shallow, fun final twist, but I didn’t love when it felt super…

    ★★★★½

    Not since seeing SAW and TEXAS CHAINSAW have I been this simultaneously impressed at the creativity on display and scared out of my fucking mind. 

    A special entry in the ‘restraints are actually freeing’ low budge genre - kindred spirits with the above plus El Mariachi, Coherence, Blood Simple, Primer. Cannot wait for #2!

    [watched in the Celeste/David cinerama dome after some brainstorming + pizza - delightful evening! 4.25 #nuanced]

    Like I say to every kindred, well shaded soul I meet on the water (re: the bucket hat): “I don’t know why everyone doesn’t have one…”

    [watched in IMAX at AMC City Walk with a big crew - fun, not smart, but that’s ok! Loved the Thomas the Tank Engine motif. I’m a sucker for train movies and well choreographed fighting without too much CGI - if anything wanted more of both! 3.25 movie, 4 star IMAX experience #nuanced]

    In ‘animation bingo’ (the ideas that get pitched most frequently), we have:
    — secret life of BLANK (aka a worse version of Toy Story. That lost sock needs to find its way back from behind the dryer somehow…)
    — how to train your BLANK
    — it’s ZOOTOPIA meets BLANK (idea that has nothing to do with Zootopia but it’s animals instead of people)
    — cats in space! (Weirdly comes up a lot)
    — a piece of art comes to life!…
