Theater Whore: Baby Driver


Baby Driver 10/10

If I rated movies higher than 10 Baby Driver would have been the first to get it. I fucking loved this movie. I decided to check this out today because I was just sitting here and was gonna dick around when I remembered that I had wanted to see this in theaters. I figured that I'd like this because I like Edgar Wright's previous movies but I had no idea that I would not want this movie to end and want to see it again as soon as it was over.

The Review: Black Mirror Season Two


Black Mirror Season Two 9/10

I swear, this show Black Mirror managed to jack me up every single episode. Just when I thought I knew where the story was going I would not only be wrong, but wrong and left feeling like an asshole. There are some episodes in particular that made me feel stupid for feeling a certain way the entire episode until the last ten minutes. This season had three episodes just like the first as well as a bonus Christmas episode that I'll include. I am so glad these are all on Netflix. From talking to folks that are afraid to watch this show its because of that pig episode in the first season. Come on, people. That is the very first episode of the first season. They ain't all that bad. I mean, it was a crazy good episode but fucked up. There will be some spoilers, you babies.

Theater Whore: Spider-Man Homecoming


Spider-Man Homecoming 9 ½/10

Oh, I had all of the fun watching Spider-Man Homecoming! There will be some spoilers in this. I'm not gonna review this like I do other movies and cover it completely or anything. This movie is everything that as a fan of Tom Holland in Civil War and rated Holland as the best Spider-Man that I wanted. He was nerdy, he lacked confidence, had a great support group, and wasn't hated by everyone. This movie also had a really good supporting cast. It wasn't just about Spider-Man struggling with his powers and being hated by everyone in the city. He was an actual friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man which is something all other five films failed to do. People would see him and get hype and then ask him to do tricks. It also showed that crime is not always happening and sometimes there isn't even when Spider-Man thinks there is.

The Review: Castlevania


Castlevania 8/10

I decided to take a break from watching the second season of Black Mirror and feeling weird an check out the new Netflix Castlevania series. I played the video game back in the 80's but I'm not married to it and didn't follow it throughout its many incantations. I say this to point out that I have no idea where the story went so I'm not upset whether or not this one stays true to whatever happened in the games. This starts with this lady finding Dracula and trying to convince him to learn more about humanity and he'll teach her science. It works but backfires when the church burns her ass at the stake. Dracula finds out and he is like “Fuck everything!” and gives folks a year to make peace with their god before he returns and kills them all. He does. Its violent as fuck.

The Review: Okja


Okja 10/10

There will be a lot of spoilers in this. I need to stop saying that and just say don't read movies reviews until after you've watched shit if you are worried about it being ruined. I gave it a 10/10. Watch it. I loved this fucking movie! Okay, I had no idea what this movie was about before I started watching it. Coworker said she could not watch it because of it making you not want to eat meat anymore to which I responded watching Super Size Me and wanting McDonald's and eating a burger while watching Food Inc. You can't stop me from eating meat. I saw a big pig with a city on its back with a little girl and the title Okja. That was the extent of my knowledge of this movie. I was excited to watch it and not even sure why but I am so glad that I did.

The Review: American Gods Episode 8 "Come To Jesus"


American Gods Episode 8 “Come To Jesus”/Season 1 Review 9/10

I am late writing this, I know. This is going to be a review of the final episode of season one of American Gods as well as the entire season. Some of you may be confused as to why I gave this season a 9 out of 10 considering I was all over this show like a cheap suit. Well, it was because of the seventh episode which was hot garbage and had about four seconds of footage that was relevant to anything. In a show that features only eight episodes you can not afford to have one that useless.

Episode eight starts off finally showing the story of Bilquis' fine ass and how she rolled before shoving men and women into her vajayjay in hotel rooms. Oh, this is told by Anansi by the way who I like even more after reading Neil Gaiman's “Anansi Boys.” He is talking to Mr. Wednesday and Shadow. Bilquis, the Queen of Sheba, is running shit back in the day and having cuddle puddles with dozens of men and women. Guys try to step up and bone her and she is all like “Bring it.” They do and then an eclipse happens and the next thing you know they all get melted and sucked into her lady parts. Its wild.

The Review: American Gods Episode 7 "A Prayer For Mad Sweeney"


American Gods “A Prayer For Mad Sweeney”

Wow. After six incredible episodes American Gods finally put out an episode that was not just uninteresting, but bad. “A Prayer For Mad Sweeney” was one of the most uninteresting hours of television I've seen in a while which sucks because it seemed to begin as if it were going to be pretty awesome by showing the work of Ibis an Jacquel. But no. It starts off with them working in the morgue and then switches to this long boring ass story about some woman in Ireland named Essie McGowan in the past that is played by Emily Browning.

The Review: American Gods Episode 6 "A Murder Of Gods"


American Gods “A Murder of Gods”

Another week another kick ass episode of American Gods. This one, “A Murder Of Gods”, starts off not with some weird animated story or something from thousands of years ago but a group of people trying to get across the border from Mexico to the US. I kept wondering “Where is this going?” The group, men, women, and children, survive a river and just when they get to land one of them almost drowns in the water. A hand reaches down and pulls him out. The guy then starts walking on water because its Jesus! Like, for reals Jesus. It was nuts! Then a group of guys in trucks with guns with ironically (or not) bible verses on them shoot and kill them all including Jesus who dies in the most Jesus Christ pose ever.

Theater Whore: Wonder Woman


Wonder Woman 5/10

I decided to watch Wonder Woman despite saying I wouldn't. If you've read my movie reviews this is not something new. I tend to shit on movies and end up watching them. This movie has such a simple premise that it makes no sense to say there will be spoilers. It also has a lot of actors that I won't bother naming because there are a lot of “that guy from that film” character actors in this. The story is pretty much Wonder Woman, aka Princess Diana, played by Gal Gadot leaves Themyscira after a plane carrying Trevor Rogers played by Chris Pine lands there. She saves his ass and then leaves with him to see the world and kill ze Germans.

The Review: American Gods Episode 5 “Lemon Scented You”


American Gods Episode 5 “Lemon Scented You”

American Gods continues to be awesome. Episode five, “Lemon Scented You”, was Shadow finally coming to the realization that the crazy shit happening around him is actually real. But first the episode starts off with this beautifully animated, I am assuming stop motion, short showing a tribe crossing from Siberia to America thousands of years ago led by a woman name Atsula. They worship a mammoth god named Nunyunnini. Over time the people end up in other tribes to the point where the god and the people are forgotten. This leads perfectly to the story of this episode concerning Mr. Wednesday and his fear of the old gods being forgotten.

The Review: Blazing Saddles


Blazing Saddles 8/10

Blazing Saddles is one of those movies where I have heard a lot of gags and seen some of them in other films or referenced but never sat down and watch the actual film itself. I finally did and am glad I did because this movie had me laughing my ass off. It stars Cleavon Little as a prisoner named Bart that is made the sheriff of a small town. Why? Because they figured that as soon as he arrived that he would be killed and then they could then plow right through the town with their train tracks. I laughed my ass off when he arrived and as the town all whipped guns out on him he took himself hostage and went into the sheriff's station. He finds the Waco Kid played by Gene Wilder in his cell hanging by his ankles form the top bunk drunk.

The Review: I Am Not Your Negro


I Am Not Your Negro 9/10

This is not the land of the free, only very unwillingly and sporadically the land of the brave. I decided to watch this tonight not knowing what it was about or anything. I am glad that I did. I did not feel that same sense of hopeless dread I did after watching 13th. I couldn't even rate that movie. This movie, to me, is about American history as much as it is about the history of Black people in America. James Baldwin even points out that his ancestors did not ask or want to come to this country. This is narrated by Samuel L. Jackson. Don't let that turn you off if you are someone that doesn't enjoy him. He doesn't distract from this whatsoever.
