    Gemini Man

    Now, this is a movie all about how
    Will Smith got cloned by a man of renown.
    And I'd like to take a minute, just sit with me,
    I'll tell you how he became de-aged in a film by Ang Lee.

    In west of some laboratory, born and raised,
    In a test tube was where he spent most of his days.
    Chillin' out, maxin', assassinatin' a fool,
    And all shootin' some people to graduate from school,
    When a couple of…

    Frozen II


    The screen glows white in the theatre tonight
    Not a cellphone to be seen
    A film devoid of imagination
    And it needs to be in quarantine

    My face is scowling like a raging storm inside
    Couldn't make it good, heaven knows they tried

    Don't let them in, don't let them see
    Be the good film Frozen I was to me
    Raw deal, this reel, don't let them know
    Well, now they know

    Don't you go, don't you go
    Can't say…

    The New York Times Presents: How to Fix a Pageant


    "Does it matter if beauty pageants are rigged or not?"

    I can't say I remember anything about this scandal, or any other issues regarding the major beauty pageants – aside from their silly existence in the first place – but when the New York Times comes back with their documentary series on FX, I'm gonna watch it.

    But this program, How to Fix a Pageant – from director Nicole Rittenmeyer, who helped make the amazing 102 Minutes That Changed America

    A Towering Task: The Story of the Peace Corps


    "We need someone with a good back, strong stomach, level head, and big heart."

    Super thorough, though relentlessly chronological, I still enjoyed the comprehensive documentary A Towering Task: The Story of the Peace Corps from Women Make Movies and director Alana DeJoseph, a Peace Corps Volunteer herself. Filled with interesting interviews with that first generation of volunteers and a treasure trove of archival footage, this is a fine and detailed look at both the historical and cultural impacts of the…

    Monty Python and the Holy Grail


    🎉"Old woman!"
    "Sorry. Old man! Who lives in that castle?"
    "I'm 37!"
    "I'm 37, I'm not old!"
    "Well, I can't just call you 'man'."
    "Well, you could say 'Dennis'."
    "I didn't know you were called Dennis."
    "Well you never bothered to find out, did you?"

    I've been waiting my whole life to use that quote on my birthday! I'm 37, I'm not old! But my name still isn't Dennis.

  • Apocalypto



    ”Our lands were ravaged. We seek a new beginning.”

    I dunno, maybe Mel Gibson just wanted to find a way to kill a bunch of brown-skinned people on screen. Did you ever think about that?

    Mel Gibson’s allegorical and violent adventure film Apocalypto has some visual splendor, tremendous performances by young and dynamic indigenous actors, and some worthwhile attempts to portray a society with rich history. Through a hero's journey, a tribe of Maya in the Yucatan is thrown into…
