    Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

    ★½

    "Me and the Black Stereotype and the Dying Girl Who Is Only Dying to Serve the Lead Character."

    Has a movie ever called attention to itself more? Between the "this isn't your typical teen movie (although the outdated clique stereotypes would disagree)" bullshit, the endless LOOK AT MY FILM KNOWLEDGE name dropping, or the absolutely fucking ridiculous and unnecessary camera gymnastics. It was non-stop flashy tricks from start to finish to mask the absolute drivel lying beneath.

    MVP to Brian Eno. He killed it.

  • Southpaw

    Southpaw

    ★★½

    My favorite part is when they stopped the film to show an Eminem music video.

    Jake is good. Fuqua is Fuqing not.
