The King of Comedy (1982)

This is a classic, darkly hilarious and a little schizophrenic, biting performances from DeNiro, as always, and I’m sure if you read reviews you’ll find praise for Sandra Bernhardt, too. Her performance is really great. It had been many years since I’d seen it and her character, Masha, blew me away. One of my favorite Scorsese films, his dark sense of humor abounds while making scathing statements on Hollywood fame and the western celebrity obsession. Jerry does really good, as well. He’s uncharacteristically understated, (I imagine he’s just being himself, rather than the Jerry we see on stage and screen). He embodies a subtly jaded ennui but remains likeable enough to sympathize with, while DeNiro plays frantically delusional well enough to feel threatening, but endearing enough that you can’t help but root for him… Sandra almost embodies the pathos of the entire film, her character would almost certainly insist that she is the main character of this story, Jerry is the lead love interest, and DeNiro is but a secondary side character there to assist her in meeting her one true love. Amazing movie, highly recommend. 4.5/5

So excited about this movie.

Same, I didn’t even know it existed until earlier today and I’m bummed it’s not up yet. Can’t wait. I guess I’ll have to watch every single other search result for “mortal kombat” on the site while I wait…

Lovecraft Country (2020) S1 E6

Really good episode. I stopped watching after episode 5 and took a few days to listen to the audiobook and unless I missed something, this entire story arc isn’t in the novel. But so far it’s been one of my favorite parts of the show! The book is really good, I highly recommend it whether you like the show or not, but the show is great as a stand-alone series, too.

The Kid Detective (2020)

One of the better movies I’ve seen in a while. Brody does on amazing job. It has a lot of darkly comedic moments but they don’t feel forced. They play with the noir tropes a lot but it doesn’t feel like a parody, and the mystery unfolds organically. Kept me guessing, great ending. I liked it a lot. 4/5

Drive Angry (2011)

This feels like a film adaptation of a graphic novel, only there’s no graphic novel. I really don’t like 3D movies, especially when I’m watching them on my regular-ass TV but it doesn’t go into 3D mode so often that it’s terribly distracting. I enjoyed it, it’s fun, shouldn’t be taken super seriously. Just a fun “let’s see how much crazy shit we can pack into a movie” type of deal. In the vein of Crank, or Shoot Em Up, meets Ghost Rider. There’s also a hilarious episode of How Did This Get Made where they discuss this movie, I recommend listening to that on YouTube or Stitcher or whatever if you decide to watch this movie. 2.5/5

Punisher: War Zone (2008)

I decided to watch this after listening to the episode of How Did This Get Made? where they interview the director, Lexi Alexander. I was not disappointed. And anyone who enjoys this movie should listen to that episode of HDTGM afterwards.

Mystery Team (2009)

I thought this was hilarious. I’d heard about it a few months ago but passed it up and I wish I had watched it then. It’s a great mixture of innocent fun and decidedly grown-up humor. The writing, timing, acting, all great. Donald Glover is amazing, as expected, but the other two are unexpectedly amazing as well (only unexpected because I’d never seen them in anything before, while I’ve seen Glover in many things and already knew he wouldn’t disappoint). If I had to come up with some weird mashup analogy I’d say it’s kinda like an R-rated Scooby Doo themed episode of Community. Highly recommend, 3.5/5

Fatman (2020)

I think this movie is going to be my new Christmas tradition. It won’t be replacing A Christmas Story or National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, but it will be played alongside them. Mel makes a surprisingly convincing badass Santa, and Walton Goggins plays himself. Really fun movie, some laughs, some action, some Christmas spirit. I wish I’d have seen this sooner. Highly recommend, but probably put the little ones to bed first. Merry Holidays, everyone!

Underwater (2020)
Deepfield67 2 points 7 months ago.

This was really great. Kristen Stewart, and the entire rest of the cast, do a bang up job. The whole thing is creepy and claustrophobic. It feels like it might as well be outer space, and is even scarier because of the immense pressure. Even in space you can conceivably survive exposure outside your suit but at the bottom of the ocean there’s literally zero margin for error. The entire premise is pretty terrifying to me, and I hate to use the word “Lovecraftian”, so I won’t, but if you’re into that kind of thing, I would highly recommend this movie.
