    My goodness. My GOODNESS. Believe the hype. It really is as amazing as everyone is saying. I haven't felt emotions this strongly and this deeply since Waves. I haven't laughed this hard or this consistently since Sorry to Bother You. It's crazy, but Everything Everywhere All at Once combines these two movies, tosses some Kurt Vonnegut in, and creates one of the most engaging, clever, creative, and human stories not just if 2022, but of the 2020's. And…

    During my inpatient stay, during one particular class, if I can remember this correctly, we talked about music. We talked about how with music we often turn on certain songs and tunes to fit our moods, to improve them. In other words, we turn on happy songs to become happier. We turn on energetic songs to get more pumped up. We then talked about how it's strange we turn on sad or painful songs yet they don't necessarily make us…

    Don't let the mid-score fool you: The Princess is a ton of fun! Goofy, silly violence with the right kinda camp. Knows what it is and loves itself for it. It's all about fun action set pieces and stupid violent antics. I would have appreciated MORE violence but what I got was great nonetheless. Also, it's funny to realize how cheap King's dress is only to realize, "Oh right, it's gonna get destroyed.". My wife really liked…

    Fairly enjoyable limited doc series. I live in PA so it was interesting to learn some local history that isn't just founding-father's stuff. Additionally, we've all had that teenage Chernobyl phase where we find it kind of cool and I recall reading at one point about TMI, but I only semi-remembered that after watching 2 episodes.

    Third episode is the strongest because it's one of those brilliant moments where a documentary feels like a fiction narrative. It…

    There's a character named Dwight in this movie and you don't understand how funny that is until you see the directors name.

    Thank me later.

    I would scroll my feed and see a minion. I would cringe. "Why?" I think to myself, "Why do the old women post minion? Why do they have the caption? Why is it this way?"

    And so, I would hate the minion. I would despise the minion. I would mock the minion when it came along. And I would destroy all wine-drinking minion posters.

    Then I had a dream. A dream where minions were dying. They were sick in a…
