    A Hidden Life

    ★★★★★

    Better to suffer injustice than to do it.

    There's a passage in Scripture that has often stumped most who read it. I'll lay it here to start, and if you're already checking out, that's fine, but if you decide to keep reading, hopefully, I can bring some clarity:

    Matthew 10:34-39 (Jesus speaking)
    “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to…

    I heard you paint houses.

    This was a strange experience. My wife was working an extra shift and it was gonna be 3 hours so I decided to bite the bullet. I'd dive into Martin Scorsese's latest 3+ hour gangster epic.

    Not only did I embrace it with convenience, I paused it once to take a break and shower, paused it once to message a friend or two, and finally buckled up to finish it out.

    Then my wife gets…

    The Golden Arm (Michigan)

    ★½

    I like anthology horror because I like horror short stories. So, I should, in theory, enjoy going through Quibi's 50 States of Fright project. But, idk, maybe I won't.

    This was ambivalent to me and very Raimi as it has fun while it does some clever scares, but that doesn't mean I think it's very good or very enjoyable. It's mostly boring and nonsensicle. I know we all laughed at Quibi's literal only claim to social media fame with the…

    The Fugitive

    ★★★

    Again, another Quibi show that should have been marketted more than their tentpole Most Dangerous Game, which is the worst of their offerings I've watched. Binging all these shows as a borderline post mortum (as the service closes soon, but hasn't yet) makes watching projects like The Fugitive bittersweet. Here's something I kind of enjoyed... that no one is going to see.

    Anyways, this project isn't without faults and its irritating qualities overstay their welcome. As the lead character is…

    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.

  • The New Mutants

    The New Mutants

    ★★½

    I kept thinking to myself, "This is really frustrating." and I think that's because - and I know a lot of people say this but I genuinely mean it based on the films history and the experience of watching this film - there's a better film in here.

    I think this comes down to Disney not caring about The New Mutants (a novel thought, amirite?), but the level to which they don't care is a little bothersome to me. That…
