    ★★★★

    Genuinely terrifying and uniquely grotesque, Barbarian is a suspenseful exploration of sexual predators and trapped women. Several twists kept me guessing and begging to learn about the depths of the basement. Very satisfying payoff. This insane production design combined with insatiable tension makes for what I can confidently refer to as the incestuous child of “Don’t Breathe” (2016) and “Malignant” (2021)

    Still one of the greatest comedy specials of all time.

  • Neal Brennan: Blocks

    Neal Brennan: Blocks

    ★★★

    While remaining above the general average standup routine, this special felt more like Brennan clocking in and clocking out. Going in I already didn’t quite believe it would be better / as good as 3 Mics, but I was expecting to laugh more than this. But it’s great to see him. This charisma audiobooks have taught him well. 

    I would probably rate this higher if this wasn’t the sequel to one of the most emotional and hilarious comedy specials of all time.

    “Some people, they’ll never accept him. But some will. And he seems to know how to find the good ones.” 

    Queers do be coding! I’m not exactly sure why the ending caused me to shed a few tears, probably because I’m bisexual and also have daddy issues. 

    I’m still surprised by how much I liked this movie and by how dark it was at times. I mean it’s not that dark compared to other Pixar films, but the real world implications…
