    “You wouldn’t run away with a murderer, would ya?”





    Seeing this extraordinary masterpiece that has touched me on such a deep emotional level on the big screen in 4K video and enhanced audio was the greatest theater experience of my life and is unlikely to ever be topped. It was quiet, engaging and uplifting to me in a way that few films could ever be, no film I've ever seen in the theater so effectively sucked me into its world…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    "They belong together. There's no place for me here."



    Over 2 decades of superhero movies and none of them has even come close to this one for me. It truly, deeply breaks my heart that people will let some poorly aged CGI and occasional scatalogical humor (which, if anything, make the trippy, nightmare reality of the film feel that much more authentic) cause them to completely write off a really well made film full of emotional power and, dare I…

    "You know that Jason guy? He has some pretty solid ideas."



    I mean, it didn't piss me off, so it's still better than Scream 2 and 3.

    On the contrary, I felt nothing by the time this ended. A Scream film without Wes Craven would need to try hard to justify its existence and find purpose and this paint-by-numbers sequel did everything but try. If you asked a computer algorithm to make a Scream sequel in 2022, this is exactly…

    "I still got it."



    Kristen Bell killing off Anna Paquin for her atrocious performance in Trick r' Treat, I love to see it.

    This is just as unnecessary as all the other Scream sequels, and definitely suffers from having to build on their weak foundation, but this was a fun and clever slasher that's several steps in the right direction. It handles the Red Herring stuff the most competently, with the meta aspect actually focused on subversion of tropes rather…

    Leaving Neverland

    3 months in and we already have the worst film of 2019.

    Dinesh D'Souza is green with envy at Dan Reed's protracted, emotionally manipulative, nonsensical, contradictory propaganda piece. There's a reason why there was nobody involved in the court case in this documentary, there's a reason why there's nobody with specific knowledge of the evidence involved in the documentary, there's a reason why Dan Reed refused to interview Corey Feldman (Maybe the most outspoken voice against child molestation in all…

    Alright, let me get this straight.

    This is...
    1) The only film in the series with an actual plot.
    2) The only film in the series with an actual structure.
    3) The only film in the series with proactive characters instead of merely reactive ones.
    4) The only film in the series where characters actually spend a decent amount of time outside.
    5) The only film in the series where the characters are all fairly intelligent and immediately take the…
