  • Juvenile Court

    Juvenile Court

    Listen, I'm likely going to keep logging Wiseman docs but honestly I'm unsure of what I'll be able to say about them. Here, it's two and a half hours of the inner workings at a Juvenile Court, and I was fascinated entirely.

  • The Endless

    The Endless

    ★★½

    I dig that Benson and Moorhead are doing their own thing here, but I can't help but feel like this is a few more edits away from a much tighter film.

    Also, Benson and Moorhead seem to be better at the naturally funny character vibe than they are at building any kind of believable world/story setting. I had to push through the cringe-worthy setting up of the back-story to get to the legitimately intriguing mysteries that ultimately are pushed aside…

    Fletch

    ★★★★★

    Michael Ritchie's Fletch is an endlessly re-watchable -- and quotable -- comedy/action flick with a solid plot adapted from the book of the same name. The kind of movie that I can watch any day of the year (and in any mood) and I'll love it no matter what.

    ★½

    Borderline insufferable and grating; starts to finally build satisfyingly in the final 10/15 minutes only to completely and totally whiff the ending.

    Shout out to the guy behind me who kept creepily whisper-talking "niiiiice" at any scene of violence.

    Wait, no. Fuck that guy.
