    Space Jam: A New Legacy


    Embarrassing for everyone involved. Embarrassing for the four directors. Embarrassing for the TEN writers. Embarrassing for the animators who had to conjure horrifying 3d versions of the Looney Tunes. Embarrassing for Sonequa Martin Green trying to turn in a respectable performance with impossible material. Embarrassing for Don Cheedle standing in front of an extra dressed up like a Pennywise cosplayer who is drawing way to much attention to himself. Embarrassing for the crew. Embarrassing for the audience. Embarrassing for…

  • Phoenix



    I can only describe this as the best Marlene Dietrich movie that doesn't star Marlene Dietrich.

    Jerry Lewis has the best musical number in the movie, and this is coming from someone who doesn't find Jerry Lewis funny.

    No movie will ever tell this story more effectively than Bob Dylan did.

    I dunno. I guess I don't find business meetings thrilling enough.

    This shouldn't even qualify as a sports movie. This is a shoe company movie.

    I need a rainbow hoodie that says "I Am Kenough!" On it.

    Easily the best movie of 2023 this far. And it is a MOVIE! Stunning, hysterical, touching, and exhilarating. The choreography, art direction, and bold screenplay are all dialled up to eleven. Definitely a film to catch in the theater.

    EDIT: Also Greta Gerwig is the first director to understand how to use Kate McKinnon.

    Also the Indigo Girls needle drop is inspired.
