    - 2020 Ranked: boxd.it/4zdAI

    Remember those patriots that said they wanted to see America run like a business? So it turns out that free market capitalism doesn't efficiently solve health crises... shocking.

    I wish I could just blame Trump for all of this but the film demonstrates that it is not quite so simple... it takes a nation full of idiots…

    The only way to perform is barefoot.

    This is an impressive stage show from one of America's most gifted entertainers. For me this doesn't quite capture the magic of Stop Making Sense but what the fuck could? It's an amazing stage show. I'd like to specifically point out how good Spike Lee's direction of this turned out. Lee is gifted at bringing stage shows to life and this one looks beautiful. Singing protest songs to a crowd of middle-aged whites that can afford an expensive ticket has never seemed so edgy.

    Very entertaining.

  • The Mortuary Collection

    The Mortuary Collection

    ★★★½

    "No evil deed goes unpunished." -Mortimer Dark,

    A collection of horror tales about people getting what is due to them with a framing story about a mortuary. This is good. While the stories are each very different the direction and cinematography makes them vibe together well.

    - Wrap Around: The mortuary story is fun, but like most anthologies the framing story is the weakest of them all.
    - Story 1: Cute little monster flick. Don't steal y'all.
    - Story 2:…

    - Bad Movie Bets Ranked: boxd.it/5Q8IA

    Hey Malcolm McDowell, what happened to your careeer?

    So, this movie has a letterboxd rating of 1.3 which is actually pretty amazing for a family film in a beloved franchise. The rating is definitely earned... this sucks.

    - The little boy is kind of creepy.
    - The humor NEVER,…

  • The Rocky Horror Picture Show

    The Rocky Horror Picture Show

    ★★★★

    "You're such an exceptional beauty." -Dr. Frank-N-Furter,

    Tim Curry everyone... this is his debut... fucking icon.

    In the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, The Rocky Horror Picture Show was a film that taught high schoolers that being weird could be badass. No one should ever lose sight of the gateway to amazing that this film is and was for so many people that need it in their lives. When I first saw it as a kid it was magic and all…
