    ★★★★

    Three Stooges 015. This one fell into the public domain and you can watch it wherever you please, personally I found it on YouTube fully recolorized like when one of those Reddit guys touches up old B&W war photos to make them look like an Alex Ross painting or whatever. Funny that a single location piece set in a courtroom is one of the few Stooges shorts to have its copyright lapse. Loads of great gags & stunts from Moe shooting a toupee to Curly having his head smushed in a vice. I was howling throughout. Best Stooges yet.

    ★½

    feels less like this movie has a screenplay at times than a Bingo board full of woke signifiers to fill, the first few minutes alone presenting the sight of Michelle Obama, 'RBG', and a big RESIST sticker on a car window. but what exactly are these characters resisting? they seem to live in a near-future neoliberal utopia where the worst offense a person could commit is maybe being a lil' bit judgmental. there is zero truth or texture to this…

    A walking contradiction. Wants to deconstruct superhero movies in a metatextual way but sticks stringently to origin story formula; wants to appeal to a teenage demo with its juvenile dick joke humor but is stuffed to the gills with pop references for thirtysomethings; wants to be seen as a big bad R-rated comic book film but treats violence as flippantly as a bullshit video game. It's obnoxious. It's boring. It's aesthetically revolting. And it's apparently what the people want, given that it's now the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time. We get the world we deserve.
