"I can admire its anarchic Back to the Future Part II (directly referenced in the dialogue) On Crack sprit, but ultimately it’s just too derivative of the original - a pretty flawed original at that - to really do all that much for me."

"Filmmakers have obviously studied their E.T. and Iron Giant, as the film essentially plays out like if those films and Bay's first 2007 Transformers had a three-way baby. It's not badly made - if I had an eleven year old kid or whatever and he liked it I'd be like "yeah, fair enough" - but my eyes just kind of glaze over with boredom these days anytime CGI fighting starts happening. I still love action movies, M:I Fallout was my favorite movie last year, but I just need something more real."

"Christian Bale’s performance gets a solid 9.5 out of 10. His physical and verbal and psychological embodiment and presence as Dick Cheney is mind blowing; brilliance. Everything else about it is kind of an overdirected and overedited mess, trying to tell way too chronologically broad a story in two hours with a million annoying voiceovers and cutaways and photo montages and monologuing to camera and fake endings and other stuff that screams “THIS IS A MOVIE!!” at you over and over and over"

"In some of its best moments (the hanging sequence around the middle namely) it achieves some high drama and moral complexity that reminded me a bit of The Ox-bow Incident. It overextends itself a bit though, with an overly protracted ending and too many subplots."

"“You know what you know about? You know about how to bitch and how to eat and how to bitch and how to shit and how to bitch!”"
|7 82%||Love, Death & Robots (2019) - Apr 22, 2019
"I wouldn’t call every episode a slam dunk but it’s definitely got enough interesting/trippy/entertaining sci-fi stuff in there for a recommend. Interesting to see them playing around with episode lengths - plays to the strengths of streaming distribution. "
|3 27%||Good Trouble (2019) - Apr 22, 2019
"Not necessarily badly made or acted or anything but just exhaustingly fucking “woke;” not a single social issue it fails to grab onto and milk like it’s got a vitamin woke deficiency."
|2 13%||Whiskey Cavalier (2019) - Apr 22, 2019
"Generic action network TV crap."
|7 82%||Shazam! (2019) - Apr 20, 2019
"I admit that I have hardcore superhero fatigue. I’ve quit every superhero TV show - didn’t even finish Daredevil season 3 - and I’ll go see Avengers 4 but after that I think I want like a 12-to-18-month break from any superhero media. But that said this was a pretty fun bit. Some solid laughs and I respect the way the director made a roughly half-the-usual superhero budget stretch where it counted."
