    Dave Chappelle: The Age of Spin


    The only part I liked was when he talked about being jealous of Kevin Hart, because it was the only time he showed vulnerability. Even aside from everything that was ignorant and willfully misinformed, I felt like he got in his own way by being too pompous. He reminds us a number of times that he's Dave Chappelle, and it's not for comedic effect. He's just boasting, as if he's become his own parody of Rick James.

    This was fun and good, but not really extraordinary. But then at the very end, Dolph’s one-liner before dispatching the evil alien was so fucking solid I want to give it five stars.

  • Face/Off



    I saw this as a cynical, shitty teenager, and hated it. Even before revisiting it, I was deeply ashamed of this fact because I knew in my heart I was wrong. I am proud of how much I have matured in the last 17 years as a viewer of cinema, and that I can now recognize Face/Off as one of the greatest films of all time.

    The thing Brooke Adams does with her eyes in this movie might be my favorite thing anyone has done in any movie.
