    Everybody Wants Some!!

    ★★★★½

    In almost every comedic movie I've ever seen, no matter how funny the overall film is, there's going to be moments of drama. It seems all comedic writers need to channel their inner Billy Shakespeare. What I adore about Richard Linklater's Everybody Wants Some is the closest we get to drama is the comment made by Jake, the character most of the movie is seen through, about Super Baseball Scout Pete Ward, not being real. The tension lasts for seconds,…

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★★

    Sometimes we romanticize the wrong people. Killers, thieves, bandits etc etc. QT, never known for passing History class, does something so right, I can’t stop smiling. Instead of painting some sympathetic picture of the Manson Family, he picks Margot Robbie’s Sharon Tate as his rightful muse. The passion in her presence is contagious. She doesn’t have a lot of lines, but this is her movie. Without her character, none of this would be possible.

    Brad and Leo are real movie…

    I’m a huge Johnny Strong fan. I am the target audience for Invincible. While Johnny looks cool as hell doing everything he does, I feel the film falls a bit flat.

    I guess my favorite scenes involve Johnny being Johnny, Johnny fighting Marko Zaror, and watching Zaror eat everything in site. Someone must’ve…

    ★★

    Another week, another Bruce Willis new release.

    Damn, forgot to even log this one. That should tell you something. I dunno. What’s the point with these films? They are basically the same movie over and over again.

    Really all you need to know is Frank Grillo needs to be a bit more selective in taking acting parts. He is too good for this. Also, with Kevin Dillon as the lead, I am reminded of Entourage and his character, Johnny “Drama”…

    Damien Chezelle's tale of a boy, his drums, and a teacher that speaks ever so loudly, and carries the biggest stick of badass this side of the Academy Awards, in one of the most heart pounding cardiac arrest breathtaking intense movies I've ever seen. The opening beat. The opening shot. The first time J.K. Simmons speaks. Groovy funky jazzy music makes all movies better. RIFIFI is the shit. Carter Burke? I knew Miles Teller was going to be special after…
