    TIM BURTON MARATHON #4

    Oh look, it's the movie from my profile picture. This one's going to be another very long and personal review.

    I haven't seen this movie in a long time and I feel like it was the perfect time for me to check it out after how much I hated Burton's Willy Wonka remake to the core last night and how much I adored Beetlejuice recently when I finally saw it.

    I saw this movie about 10…

    Going to AA when it becomes realistically available in the maritimes because I'm fucking sick of this shit controlling my life. When you've been getting paid more to essentially sit inside your apartment and get shitfaced while your partner goes out to be an "essential worker" and serve the public while she gets the whip cracked at her for taking more than 20 seconds to jot something down in her notebook, it kind of digs at…

    Tay is going through all of these in "chronological order" and I ended up watching it a lot more than I thought I would. I was baking a mac and cheese for my friend's birthday and it would have been finished about 30 minute earlier if I wasn't busy watching everyone's favorite Star Wars movie. Besides, that's what this movie is.

    A big bowl of mac and cheese.

    WINTER "HIGH ART" MARATHON 3.0 #89

    Beautiful to look at and it hits very close to home. I've always felt more like a writer and a photographer than a filmmaker. This feels like something I would only think of making in my dreams. There's a scene where someone has a mental breakdown about an hour into it or so that sticks out like a sore thumb. I was so hypnotized.

    Out-fuckin'-standing. I've said this about a lot of movies throughout the marathon, but this really is one-of-a-kind and I wish there were more films like it.

    You fucking people thought Gotti was a meme?

    Give this a few months to be the laughing stock of the internet. I seriously couldn't believe what I was watching as I was seeing it.

    If it weren't for "The Haunting of Sharon Tate", this would be the worst film of the year, but it's simply too entertaining for me to put it lower than that offensive dumpster fire.

    This is gonna be John Travolta's "Wicker Man". A masterpiece of garbage.

    I think "tasteless" is the only word I could use to describe this.

    A genuinely awful movie from start to finish and might be my worst of the year so far.

    Watching Once Upon A Time In Hollywood twice this week and then watching this was like getting punched in the face.
