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

    Let’s discuss morality in horror films for a quick sec, specifically in relation to Bobby-Lynne’s death and why I think it derails the entire film in a way that can’t recover from. At this point in the movie, it’s been revealed that Pearl and Howard are killing off our protagonists because of jealousy for their youth and beauty with a mix of puritanical rage at their being adult film stars. All well and good, although the inherent ageism of “look…

    Even as a huge fan of Pablo’s last film, Jackie, I still went into this with a bit of trepidation because the overall Diana mythos feels obscured at this point by retcons about just how damn quirky/sad she was. I had no clue that that would be literally all this film is. Diana is sad. Diana is quirky. Rinse and repeat. You never see Diana really even attempting to follow the rules or be somewhat normal. So…

    So lemme get this straight. You have one of the most iconic characters of all time and for his movie you show him in the mask maybe.. 5 minutes total? And the rest of the time is just some dude with a face like burnt meatloaf? Incredible. 10/10. No notes. 

    I wanted to watch this for years. I expected it to be weird and gross and mid. How has no one told me it’s a legit camp classic? Every second…

    I fear we’ll look back on the cruel underperformances of Confess, Fletch and Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar as what signaled the death of mid-budget comedies. They’re both so fun and desperately under-appreciated. 

    Jon Hamm, still sporting a quarantine bod and wearing the same plain shirt in nearly every scene, is the funniest he’s ever been. Whereas his previous comedic efforts pushed a little too far into goofy, he finds the perfect balance for Fletch as both a roughish…

    I love animated movies. This is what I imagine people who hate them feel like every animated movie is: just constant screaming, flat plotting, and weak jokes. The voice acting (of actors I usually like) is hyped up to 11, which becomes grating after a few minutes. The plot itself is obvious and unsurprising with no plot moments that have any weighty stakes.

    Now combine that with a near constant stream of paint-by-numbers faux sentimentality, vague corporate-approved gestures at representation,…

    Don’t go reading reviews for this. Go watch it. 

    Recommendation?
    Watch If: you wanna see a movie that probably only works once but works SO WELL once.

    Discussion Question: What genre is this?
