    ★★★★½

    Weird hearing Billy Bob’s voice coming out of an anime. The English dub has a caravan of late ‘90s stars (Gillian Anderson, Minnie Driver, Billy Crudup, etc.) but none of them are really good at conveying emotion through just their voices?

Lots of Tim sitting in a hotel room doing his usual blowhard schtick without much of a story to focus on. An interesting curio if you're a Tim head or heavily invested in the labyrinthine drama of the On Cinemaverse. There's a few good laughs, and I liked how the doc blurred the lines of reality. Was Tim's assistant acting or actually trying to help him campaign? Gregg gets a few solid moments to shine, too. So, I guess it's not a total wash. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Most of the movie nails a sort of…

    Cats

    Nothing prepared me for the amount of high key horniness in Cats the movie. Furballs high on nip rub against each other and purr. Dancing felines almost kiss each other on their human mouths but break away at the last second because the tension builds too hot and strong. The Jason Derulo cat nearly sucks on a foot covered in CGI hair. The Taylor Swift cat sings about banging the criminal mastermind Idris Elba cat who wears a fedora and…
