"There’s plenty of video footage of nothing happening, but anything interesting is only shown as still pictures. It’s cool to see young Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin in high def, but after about 45 minutes, I was feeling a little like “goodnight, moon”, if ya know what I mean."

"Without any explanation about these doppelgängers, I found their presence annoying more than frightening while sitting through the first half. The second half left me wondering why the film had wasted so much time, when there were more interesting places to go. It lacks the ingenuity of Get Out, with the ending being an especially unoriginal twist."
|59 85%||Isn't It Romantic (2019) - Mar 01, 2019
"There’s a Groundhog Day-esque satisfaction to watching a character that can see through all of the predictable bullshit in their new reality. This should be a modern classic in the romantic comedy genre; because it really is a subgenre that is shamefully overcrowded with tripe."

"Dulled by disdain. The edit is overlong and padded with tantrums of political images and irrelevant pop culture, as an attempt to stir a feeling of chaos. It is equipped with all of the powers of manipulation of a child begging you to watch them do a cartwheel, when they cannot do a cartwheel."
|56 76%||Demetri Martin: The Overthinker (2018) - Feb 28, 2019
"That whispering his internal thoughts thing achieved a deeper level of annoying than even Gaffigan has been able to accomplish. Solid jokes as usual though. (The a-hole one was my favorite)"

"Very clever stuff. Playing an instrument while telling jokes makes me cringe though."
|51 40%||Fred Armisen: Standup For Drummers (2018) - Feb 25, 2019
"The thing he did on Conan wasn’t the full tree, but more sweet was the fruit. https://youtu.be/UCBkj5fO4k4"
|55 70%||John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City (2018) - Feb 23, 2019
"Um... his mic is too low. How am I expected to laugh at comedy when the acoustics are bad? Rub my feet"
|56 76%||Brian Regan: Nunchucks and Flamethrowers (2017) - Feb 23, 2019
"I loved hearing him talk about his parents’ sense of humor. This is his weakest special by far though."
|50 25%||Tig Notaro: Happy to Be Here (2018) - Feb 22, 2019
"Tig, equipped with nothing but the mundane, trust falls into her audience. She must go to sleep by 5pm, to have such little material to draw humor from. Half of this special is her talking about meowing to her cat. The only times she is legitimately making a joke, it is an obvious/recycled one. I’ve seen her be funny, but not here."
