    Killer's Kiss

    ★★★½

    (The Average Joe’s Movie Club Cast)

    Criterion Collection Spine #575 (Part 2)

    Stanley Kubrick's underrated sophomore feature was so much better than I expected.

    "It's crazy how you can get yourself in a mess sometimes and not even be able to think about it with any sense-and yet not be able to think about anything else."

    Like many young cinephiles Stanley Kubrick was my first favorite director, so why am I just now finishing off watching all his feature films.…

    Ichi the Killer

    ★★★½

    (The Average Joe’s Movie Club Cast)
    Cringe Movie Bucket List
    (Foreign language film - Japanese)

    With a movie this brutal and depraved, of course we don't get the satisfaction of the best character being Ichi.

    "Listen, when you're giving pain to someone, don't think about the pain that person is feeling. Just concentrate on how good it feels to be causing someone pain. That's the best thing you can do for a true masochist!" ... I have a feeling Takashi…

    Mo Amer: Mohammed in Texas

    I like to think of comedy as the great unifier.

    "You dip towards yourself ... You don't dip out! ... You're like, "Oh, I wanna taste like what it's like on that side ... Bitch, it's the same hummus
    on each side. Okay."

    I had never heard of Mo Amer before, but it was hilarious and touching getting to hear all about his middle eastern American perspective as a Texan. Bidets are really that popular around the world? I now feel so uncultured with my bathroom experience 🚽 😂.

    In the Line of Fire

    ★★★

    Recommended by: Marvin123

    Clint Eastwood playing a secret service agent on a mission to stop a man threatening to kill the President, had way more levity than I was expecting.

    "Watching the President, I - I couldn't help wondering why a man like you would risk his life to save a man like that. You have such a strange job - I can't decide if it's heroic or absurd."

    Haunted by the fact that he froze during the assassination of…

    Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    ★★★★

    (RIP Harold Ramis: 1944 - 2014)

    Dusting off those old Proton Packs to honor the past, and look to the future.

    "I will always be a Ghostbuster."

    I did not come into Ghostbusters: Afterlife with any expectations, and as a long-time fan of the franchise it was so exciting to see the story continued like this. The movie takes us out to the middle of nowhere where Egon Spengler was preparing for the final stage of Gozer's
    apocalypse. But when…

  • Encanto

    Encanto

    ★★★★

    Building an all-new foundation of family, music, and magic!

    "This is my chance, I will save the magic. Wait how do I save the magic?"

    The House of Mouse has delivered yet another incredible cultural animated musical adventure. In Encanto, we are brought to Colombia to meet Mirabel who is surrounded by magic from her home that comes to life with personality, to her family members with special abilities. She is the rock of her family by being there for…
