    Ohhh baby. Masterpiece. Mast. Er. Piece. Yearly watch and got it out of the way pretty early this year. But I just couldn't wait.

    Random thoughts

    I grew up in St Louis and loved the eeriness of a smalltown in the middle of Illinois, just a few hours away, where this all happened. I know this was shot in California and there are no palm trees in the middle of freaking Illinois, but it's creepy if I believe it.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Probably my favorite movie of the 21st century and one of my favorites of all time. It's my birthday, so it was the first movie I thought to rewatch to celebrate.

    What makes this movie special is it can be watched on a more surface level as a neo-western, with some twists and turns thrown in; it can be watched as an older man coming to terms with the chaos of a new violent world; or it can be watched…

    Though a majority of the narrative and footage comes from a Ted Talk given by Jefferey Robinson, he is such an interesting person that his honest and humble charisma carries the film along.

    A sobering look at America's racist past, Robinson does a fantastic job presenting the facts without attacking viewers on the fence. Sure there are a couple racists giving it half stars when you scroll down to see the reviews on lb, but the truth is Robinson has…

    I love Jordan Prentice. His role in In Bruges is so memorable.


    "I was not aware that there were any prostitutes in Bruges."

    Lol

    I'm so glad someone built a film around him

    This just made me miss Wes. The sunny jigsaw puzzle of gore he gave us is traded in for a drearier melodrama with a lot of dutch angles. This feels like a reset on a property that was a perfectly fine living breathing franchise that successfully lived beyond the first one. The humor and meta elements didn't work for me and felt forced.

    There are some good set pieces and Ghostface is pretty scary at times. I'm close to giving it a 3. It just felt off.

    Review on Friday.
