    Blood Rage

    ★★★

    Little late for a Thanksgiving watch, but I wanted to get around to this and Saturday was the first chance I had.

    Really enjoyed parts of this, while other parts dragged quite a bit. It and Black Friday (2021) - which I watched yesterday - have quite a few similarities in execution in terms of inconsistent pacing and some subpar acting despite solid effects, though Blood Rage is still far and away the superior.

    I'd at least seen the Cinema…

    Black Friday

    ★★½

    This didn't end up hitting theaters anywhere near me, but I decided to on-demand it after work on Black Friday. Haven't done retail on Black Friday in two years, since I have my radio job, and haven't missed it one bit.

    Did three Black Friday tours (2017-19) with a couple different places while in college. Was excited for this, mostly just because of Bruce Campbell, but wasn't expecting a whole lot.

    Definitely extremely subpar in parts, but with some fun…

    The last 15 minutes of this movie are pure fucking chaos and I loved every second of it.


    But seriously, I finally get to see another Tarantino in theaters and I loved this movie. It's fantastic. Some great performances - DiCaprio gives one of the best of his career, and Brad Pitt is phenomenal as well. The performances and the final 15 minutes are the best parts (there's no bad parts, to be honest) and make this movie as great…
