    Another Round


    "We're not alcoholics. We decide when we want to drink. An alcoholic can't help himself."

    If ever there was a movie to verify why I'm a teetotaler.

    Much like how Martin and his friends are playing out an experiment, Another Round in itself feels like a longform creative experiment on the effects of alcohol and what it does to the brain. What we call "liquid courage" is really just enough of our inhibtions being removed to push ourselves to be…

    Together Together


    "When I hang out with my settled friends, I feel sad for what I want and don’t have. And when I hang out with my single friends, I feel sad for what I have and don’t want."

    Honestly one of the sweetest and most real movies I've seen to have come out in the past few years.

    I'd never heard of Patti Harrison before watching Together Together but she is a fucking legend. One of the best acting performances ever.…

    The Italian Job


    "One more thing! Just remember this... in this country, they drive on the wrong side of the road."

    The Italian Job promises a lot of thrills, but suffice to say I was left extremely underwhelmed by it. This job is ultimately an hour of fluff followed by thirty minutes of admittedly great Mini Cooper car chases through the streets and sewers of Italy... only to end on an abrupt and really weird note.

    Even though it's marketed as a comedy,…

    Trading Places


    "Hows come I don't see no marks on you?"
    "Cause I'm a karate man, alright!? Karate men bruise on the inside!"

    Ahh sweet, another 80's movie about brokers doing a big "stock heist" to screw over some rich dudes where I can just sit back and laugh going "Ha ha! I know how the stock market works!"

    There's a few notable ways in which Trading Places hasn't aged the hottest. Rape jokes (including of the animal-on-man variety), some casual f-slurs…

    Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant


    A harmless bit of fluff for the really obsessive MCU fans.

    If they kept on caring this much about explaining away any plot point as incongruous as why Tony Stark would be the one to talk to General Ross at the end of The Incredible Hulk, we'd probably have a million of these shorts by now (half of them made specifically for Endgame).

    But it's nice to get a little taste of the inside S.H.I.E.L.D. meetings that happened between movies. And I like that the World Security Council sees Emil Blonsky as the big hero who defeated the Hulk. Because yeah, of course they would.

    Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse


    "Wherever you go from here, you have to promise to take care of that little boy for me. Make sure he never forgets where he came from. And he never doubts that he’s loved. And he never lets anyone tell him that he doesn’t belong there."

    I was always... cautiously excited about sequels to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse at best. It was such an incredible movie that felt like it could only come around once in a generation, and it…
