  • Too Funny to Fail: The Life and Death of The Dana Carvey Show

    Too Funny to Fail: The Life and Death of The Dana Carvey Show

    ★★★½

    I would do anything for Stephen Colbert. 

    Also, he said in this he named his daughter Madeleine, which is what I wanna name my future daughter, so that was pretty validating.

  • Wuthering Heights

    Wuthering Heights

    ★★½

    Neither of these characters is likable! So sick of the archetype of the brooding and dark jerk, who has a secret soft spot for a brunette.

    Also, follow up - how do they even like each other?!

    Out of the two Laurence Olivier movies I've seen, he's overacted in both of them.

    The Kate Bush song is way better!

  • Whiplash

    Whiplash

    ★★★★½

    Was leaning towards 4/5 halfway through, but damn that ending is one of the greatest endings I have ever seen.

    Kinda unsure about the moral to this movie. Like giving up everything and being an asshole is okay if you're passionate and talented?

    JK Simmons is a master emotional manipulator fucking hell.

  • Incredibles 2

    Incredibles 2

    ★★★★

    SO good. Not as funny as the first one, but the stakes were HIGH, the drama was REAL, the teamwork was AWESOME.

    Also, Dash reminds me of my youngest brother Frankie so much it's insane.
