  • Wrestling Isn't Wrestling

    Wrestling Isn't Wrestling

    ★★★½

    "Wrestling is melodrama. Wrestling is mythology. Wrestling is action. Wrestling is comic books. The only thing wrestling isn't is wrestling." - Max Landis

    Akin to my last review, another preface before getting into this. Two things, actually. First, I do not nor have I ever followed wrestling.

Man... 2004. It's really been 14 years,…

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    ★★★★★

    "My mind is going. There is no question about it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I can feel it." - HAL 9000

    (Seen in 70 mm at the Music Box Theatre in Chicago.)

    Space Baby still worked his magic.

    2001 seems to be the most "movie" movie. What does that mean exactly? Well, in my own humble opinion, a film boiled down to its core is a story told through the combination of visuals and audio. It…
