    I liked Adam McKay a lot more when he wasn’t trying to be Oliver Stone. Big oof.

    Decent way to spend Halloween. Gross, ridiculous fun. Loved the ’70s filtered through early ’00s thing this had going on and that this movie is highly informed by the ’70s. Good premise, solid execution and Snoop is fantastic as the titular antihero.

    In an effort to cover as many bands as possible, and to include talking head snippets from famous fans, Beautiful Noise ends up only giving a cursory glance to the birth of shoegaze. It's more of a primer than an intimate look into the scene. I would've appreciated a bit more depth and really I'd rather see separate movies focusing solely on Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine without the irrelevant opinions of Billy Corgan and Wayne Coyne.

    This is basically the communist version of the little rascals fighting the nazis. It is incredible. Loved the filming style and the development of each of the child characters. Their dances and songs are hilarious. The town is beautifully filmed. Luli is one of the best dogs that cinema has seen.

    Death to the fascists, freedom to the people, long live Luli.
