    The OG. The one that started it all - giving us the archetype vigilante cop who plays by his own rules (often breaking actual ones) all in the name of “getting the bad guy.”

    It’s interesting having just seen this for the first time after bearing witness to all of its copycats over the year, but I have to say that doesn’t take anything away from how great of an experience this film truly was. Even by 2021 standards, it…

    Is it just me or are A24 films starting to have too much of a predictable vibe?

    More and more the plots and performances in their stable of films are bordering on unironically comical and over the top. While this movie has an interesting premise (social media thread turned into film), it might also be their worst offense yet.

    One of the most wild, heartbreaking, depressing, utterly insane things of the year…I haven’t seen something this electric and propulsive since Breaking Bad.

    Also, episode 6, just wow 👏👏👏

    This is the vibe that DC should’ve went back to after The Dark Knight Trilogy...it’s maintains a darker tone while still not being overly humorous and meta like the MCU. 

    It’s also crazy to think that Jack Nicholson, who was arguably the biggest and most critically acclaimed actor of this time, took on the role of a comic book villain “clown” and totally nailed it (yeah Ledger and Phoenix took it to new heights, but this OG version still rips). Only thing comparable these days would be if Leo did something similar...which I pray to the movie gods he never does.
