    Back in 2013, I was a sophomore in college. I'd made friends with some folks living down the hall from me in what was then Aspen Dorm at Northern Arizona University. I'd had connections like this my freshman year, but these visits felt particularly special, since the people I'd made friends with were far more on my wavelength and didn't have other friends from rich families who'd whinge about how they only had three thousand dollars left in their bank…

    CULT OF PERSONALITY! ISLA FISHER!

    You've heard of Disaster Girls; now get ready for Weaponized Disaster Girls!

    Confessions of a Shopaholic has, at least, a fun hook at its center if you can stick through the film long enough: Hugh Dancy's financial magazine editor recognizes something disruptive and vitalizing in Isla Fisher's active time car crash lifestyle, a plainspoken honesty and insight about how the world works beneath her compulsive shopping and inability to get through a five minute period…

    Film School Drop-Outs 2018! Week 2 Retro - The Silent Comedy!

    Having reflected for the better part of 24 hours before writing this review, I think the funniest thing about Charlie Chapin's Tramp are the moments when you aren't sure whether he's cottoned on or not. Take the spaghetti eating scene for instance, where his expression wavers between disbelief and satisfaction, culminating in a head turn and slow standing up with brows knit... only for it to turn out he's…

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    My misease over the MCU's relationship with power and its morality grows with every passing day.

    I know it's difficult to remember given the first Doctor Strange is What If We Made A Movie Without Actual Characters, but the ex-Sorcerer Supreme's theatrical debut at least paid LIPSERVICE to the idea crossing self-set moral lines and doing wrong to make right will eventually incur a high cost in return. It's the entirety of the Ancient One's plot in the film, the…
