    Ellen DeGeneres: Relatable

    ★★★★

    I don’t know if there is a better person than Ellen, and she cracks my shit up. This is the first time I’ve ever seen her stand-up, but she’s excellent. The fact that she’s 60-years old is mind blowing. While I don’t watch a ton of stand-up, I usually enjoy them, and this fell right into that theme. Ellen is a wonderful human being, and this routine was not only hilarious, but inspiring and uplifting. Definitely worth watching.

Just a fun little flick. I’ve seen the sequel a lot more than this original, and it’s probably the better movie, but I liked this one too.

    ★★★

    This is a surprisingly solid low-budget slasher film. Loved seeing the main character from Sleepaway Camp playing in this as an adult. Lots of references to '80s slashers, and solid enough for what it is.
