    Sorry to Bother You

    ★★★½

    Scavenger Hunt #53 – Task 28 (Watch a movie starring Armie Hammer)
    -----------------------------------------


    Rewatching this for the first time and my thoughts haven't really changed. This is a wholly original, visually creative, and original film that takes huge risks. Some work and some don’t, but the film is anything but cookie cutter.


    The problems for me arise in the last half-hour of the movie where the film’s sci-fi elements come into fruition. It's difficult to describe and even more difficult…

    Scavenger Hunt #53 – Task 8 (Watch a movie from the year 2008)

    It revolves entirely around Jennifer Lawrence’s character; it’s either shot over her shoulder, on her face, or whatever…

    Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

    ★★★½

    Just got back from the 'Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie' advanced screening, and it's everything you'd expect it to be: frenetically paced, full of potty humor, and a surprising amount of heart.

    I used to order the books as a kid using those Scholastic book orders, and I would read them all day. So, as a fan, I was certainly satisfied. But even I was skeptical of it from that initial trailer. Luckily, the movie is a lot better…
