    The Black Phone

    I spent the whole movie trying to figure out why this was a period piece and then remembered that technology has obliterated all the human limitations and storytelling conventions that used to generate suspense and now I’m trying to figure out why all movies aren’t period pieces.

  • Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    [Fleabag to camera] “This is a love story.”

    My only litmus test for this movie was whether or not Carnage turns his hand into a curved pendulum blade like the snap-on that came with the ToyBiz figure and [SPOILER] he does.

    If you told me in the ‘90s that the Carnage movie would be about how heteronormative monogamy was killing society, I would have said, “Sir, I’m 10.”

    I rented this from the library. That’s called citizenship.
