Bio: My reviews are a collection of the movies I have seen since 2005. The scores I give mean everything and nothing. Mostly nothing. Unfortunately, I don't have the ability to discern the difference between a '75' and '80', so I just pick numbers at random.

|40 19%||Scream 4 (2011) - Jun 13, 2021
""Oh, I saw this a decade ago. Why don't I remember anything about this film?...oh, that's why." A forgettable experience. I think the big issue is that none of these characters are compelling. Also, what was once novel and interesting about the meta-aspect of the first film, the fourth one just feels incredibly tired. "
|90 92%||An American Werewolf in London (1981) - Jun 12, 2021
"John Landis really said, "let's put every rock song about a moon on the soundtrack." When someone makes a horror comedy well, they deserve a ton of praise. However, since it's John Landis, and not only is he responsible for that whole thing, but he also let his son walk this earth. A lot of love when into filming the porno. Also, because they are overworked, I haven't seen a nurse spend more than three minutes in a room on a patient, let alone invite them back to their place to stay."
|65 43%||Monterey Pop (1968) - Jun 10, 2021
""Hey, it's your grandpa. Yeah, he's the guy who has his head painted with LOVE and some rainbows. No, you don't understand, it was a different time, kid." Boy, for an 80-minute documentary, it's a bold choice to end with a 15-minute Ravi Shankar jam session. Jimi's fire guitar is right there!"
|70 53%||Dolls (1987) - Jun 07, 2021
"Halfway through, I thought, "wait, I think I have seen this." I checked, and sure enough, I had. I am not sure how I forgot this absolutely bonkers film. All films should be under 80 minutes. That's worth an extra few points."
|70 53%||Magic (1978) - Jun 07, 2021
"This film confirms my suspicion that no ventriloquist can be trusted. This is why Jeff Dunham is the most dangerous man in the world. It's always nice when schlocky material is treated seriously, even if I also love the schlock."
|40 19%||Scream 3 (2000) - Jun 06, 2021
"On this big of a film, you would think someone would have taken issue with Cox's bangs. Neve Campbell was on-set for possibly 3 days. This film presents an interesting meta idea of a film-within-a-film, and then possibly because of the bloated runtime, squanders it. Parker Posey is a lot of fun. "
|90 92%||Bo Burnham: Inside (2021) - Jun 05, 2021
"Early in his career, it was easy to hate Bo, only because it was annoying to see someone young already so talented and funny. Okay, maybe that was a me thing. But I have really come around to him, and this is a masterpiece. This captures the past year so perfectly."
|60 36%||Motel Hell (1980) - Jun 05, 2021
"I went into this completely blind, so I was not aware that this was satirical. For the first half of the film, it feels like vignettes cobbled together, and each scene just left me with more questions. Then, it just becomes more of a comedy, and amps up the ridiculousness. I enjoyed it, but it's also incredibly slow-moving in parts. Honestly, should have realized what I was in for when the "O" faded out from "Motel Hello". "
|75 65%||Nate Bargatze: The Greatest Average American (2021) - May 30, 2021
"This special brings the "ha-has" and that's all I want from a comedy special. I don't need too much plot."
|60 36%||How High (2001) - May 30, 2021
"I am pretty sure this was the first film I ever downloaded from Kazaa (either this or Freddy Got Fingered). The director of this is Bob Dylan's son, so there is a possibility that Bobby D watched this. I could not find an Ebert review, unfortunately."
