    This is one of those movies where if someone keeps asking themselves “I don’t get it” for the first half it becomes pretty frustrating. Stick with it and it kind of makes sense eventually, but it’s still a mind fuck. Recent fans of the show Severance might be interested in this movie. One of the major plot points is the disconnect between who people think they are and what is actually happening. Reality is arbitrary. I’d rate this higher if the story had more cohesion. It ends up more of a party conversation piece of how would you navigate this twisted mind game situation.

    This was way better than I expected, knowing the premise is similar to Tremors, but being an Irish drunk gives certain characters nearly absolute immunity to being killed by the monsters. It’s a twisted anti-super hero story where being a psychologically damaged alcoholic has life saving benefits. It’s also funny this title recursively inspired the creatures in Tremors 5 also known as grabbers.

    If you’re a fan of all the Edgar Wright/Simon Pegg collaborations that poke fun at genre conventions, this might be right for you.

    T’Challa as the lead character doesn’t resonate with me. He seems so bland. Maybe just above Thor level bland. Luckily there’s enough supporting cast to elevate such a weak character. The “my daddy died” angle doesn’t…

    I highly recommend anyone with a pulse to check this documentary out. You know how local news stories mention some f’d up hoarder story, but they never follow through what happens to those people? This is a six year in the making following a crazy person long after that news story. 

    Because of the cinéma vérité style there’s never any explanation as to how or why this Kathy person became this deranged bird collector. She and her husband Gary used…
