    The Irishman

    ★★★★★

    Absolutely baffling to me that this movie has a reputation as hard to watch, just because it's like, a Seinfeld episode longer than an Avengers movie. I was transferring files around while working and accidentally opened up this movie to the scene where the guy pauses the montage music to strangle a guy and then hits play to turn it back on, and I was like "ok... guess I'm watching The Irishman today." Supremely watchable movie. Even at its most melancholic it is so breezy and full of momentum, and it just moves. Absolute top tier stuff

    Line Goes Up: The Problem With NFTs

    NFTs are just embarrassing man. They're obviously terrible and obviously ugly. If you're going around proudly showing off an ugly drawing of a monkey as if it's a status symbol, I'm mostly just embarrassed for you. Anyway this documentary was good

    ★★★★

    This was a big blind spot for me, so imagine my surprise to discover it's literally the exact same plot as the SpongeBob movie

    I have a big soft spot for movies with arrogant asshole protagonists, speaking as an arrogant asshole protagonist, and movies with big dumb goofy sloppy dogs, speaking as the owner of a big dumb sloppy dog. It's nice watching this genre of kids movie knowing they're not gonna kill off the animal sidekick for cheap emotional…

    I just think it's nice to watch a bad Melissa McCarthy movie sometimes to see the most talented people you know debase themselves for two hours. Peter Dinklage is in this. Kathy Bates is in this. We all have lows I guess. McCarthy is talented too. Remember she got an Oscar nomination for Bridesmaids? That was nuts. This is really lazy and lowest-common-denominator, but moms gotta watch something too I guess

    "Good. You're still here.
    "Good. I like being here."


  • The Super Bob Einstein Movie

    The Super Bob Einstein Movie

    God, such a funny dude. Been watching a lot of Curb Your Enthusiasm lately, and Marty Funkhouser's bits always stuck with me. You see this tall guy and expect him to be a goofy wacky Ryan Stiles guy, but then he starts every scene as angry and confrontational telling Larry he's an asshole and a prick. That guy knew how to put together a comedy formula through sheer willpower. I'd honestly sit through another hour or two of just all these comedians watching Super Dave clips and riffing about their friend

  • The Longest Yard

    The Longest Yard

    ★★★½

    Fascinating movie because it has the sense of humor of a Happy Madison joint, but the aesthetic sensibilities of like, a real movie. Some absolutely dated and cringggggey stuff in here, but c'mon. Burt Reynolds, Chris Rock, William Fichtner, my man James Cromwell. Call it nostalgia, but it's hard not to be charmed by this thing. A cable TV staple

    Very funny that Sony made them change the name to the sterile "Connected" for marketing purposes, and then Netflix bought the rights, changed the name back and said "don't worry, we don't market our movies" :)

    A coroner eats very well... he knows all the widows!

    Just a generally nice time. Probably a lil too long, but it fits the chill vibe. I'm a big fan of the genre "Let's just dick around in Italy for a little while." By that metric, this is a fun one. A couple gags made me laugh really hard. Hot take, but Billy Wilder: pretty good director! The score had a few shades of Grand Budapest Hotel, and I wouldn't…
