    ★★★

    Dumb as shit but actually has a surprising amount going for it: 
    —Very fast paced. They halfheartedly dink around with the setup for like 2 minutes before the action starts and it never really lets up
    —Jason Statesman vs Cap’n America 
    —Hilarious in hindsight “How about this amazing technology in 2004” stuff; at one point Cap brags thst his Nokia can store up to 50 phone numbers. Also his phone has video chat technology the likes of which we barely have today. 
    —Action mode Bill H Macy

  • Night of the Demons

    Night of the Demons

    ★★★

    Fantastically trashy Evil Dead riff, with some pretty cool FX, a lotta dumb 80s characters/dialogue and national treasure Linnea Quigley doing her trademark weird line readings + nudity routine. She deserves a Kennedy Center Honor for her contributions to the medium.

    The Departed

    ★★★½

    Y’all know this movie is fucking insane, right? An unhinged mishmash of bizarre plot machinations, over the top performances and cartoonish violence—this may be the strangest best picture winner of all time. This is the one Marty finally got his Oscar for. Not Taxi Driver, not Goodfellas, this faakin doofy Baastin crime parable that feels like a musical without the songs. There is a sex scene set to “Comfortably Numb.” Everybody was skipping meds.

  • Lethal Weapon 4

    Lethal Weapon 4

    ★★½

    Last three scenes: 
    Riggs and Murtaugh bloodily dispatching Jet Li with a rebar pole.
    Joe Pesci tearfully telling Riggs about his dead pet frog from childhood.
    Wacky childbirth sequence.
    Damn this series got weird. Great car chase, though.
