|71 66%||Joe Rogan: Strange Times (2018) - Nov 16, 2018
"Pretty similar to Triggered, but with a little more polish. He's very engaging and after two good stand-up specials, I feel I probably need to finally check out his podcast."
|70 63%||Joe Rogan: Triggered (2016) - Nov 16, 2018
"Disclaimer: I don't have a ton of familiarity with Rogan since his News Radio days. The individual components all seem mediocre (joke originality, wit, insight, performance, etc.), but somehow it all comes together to be much more than the sum of its parts. He's doing something that makes this really good that I'm not fully appreciating, but at the end of the day, it is quite good."
|77 82%||Magic for Humans (2018) - Nov 07, 2018
"This is a really fun show, both for the magic and the humor. It is difficult to make magic impressive on tv, but Willman does a nice job here."
|71 66%||Eighth Grade (2018) - Nov 05, 2018
"Eighth Grade is, for now, probably the definitive film on the adolescence of Generation Z. Burnham's direction is impressive for a debut (of sorts), and Elsie Fisher hit it out of the park. The unfortunate downside is that a movie that succeeds so well at making you feel the protagonist's discomfort ends up being an uncomfortable overall experience."
|70 63%||Halloween (1978) - Nov 02, 2018
"Surpassed only by Star Wars in terms of the importance of the score to the movie's overall success. I've never been into slashers, but it's interesting to see what basically started them all. I really appreciated some of the filmmaking more than anything else, especially the opening scene."
|61 40%||Beetlejuice (1988) - Nov 02, 2018
"A lot more bizarre than I was expecting, and a lot less Michael Keaton than I was expecting. The story was fun, and some of the gags worked well, but many more of the gags fell completely flat. It is interesting, but not worth of its status as a semi-classic."
|80 88%||The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst (2015) - Oct 31, 2018
"Put this off for a while because I knew about the ending before I started. Even with that, it was still fantastic. The interviews with Durst are definitely the highlight; they provide, in a very strange and roundabout way, an honest look into his mind."
|54 25%||She's Out of My League (2010) - Oct 28, 2018
"You could do worse, but there's nothing here that's new or surprising."
|73 72%||Upgrade (2018) - Oct 25, 2018
"It's a pretty simple sci-fi premise, but it's executed very nicely, with some fun twists and turns. It has a really fun blend of humor, horror, and action, without any jarring tonal shifts."
|47 14%||Life of the Party (2018) - Oct 22, 2018
"I feel like McCarthy alternates between good and bad movies, and this was a bad one. A couple of funny parts here and there (usually involving Maya Rudolph), but the majority of the jokes fail to even get a chuckle. "
