    "That's the trouble with the world... we all despise ourselves."

    Different hat(s) and mustache, same Charlie.

    This is Chaplin at probably his most humanitarian. A beautiful mix of comedy, love, and macabre... much like life.

    I fucking love it.

    ★★★★½

    "Welcome to the world, Boy!"

    I was going to write "this is a horror movie in the sense that living in any time before now was a horror movie", but instead I think I'll say "all human existince is a horror movie."

    Into the Dark: School Spirit

    ★★½

    "Maybe we shouldn't have gotten high and told ghost stories..."

    Kind of a mashup of The Breakfast Club, Friday the 13th, and Scream Queens... but less interesting than all of those. It's fine though, I always appreciate a low budget horror movie.

  • Silver Bullet

    ★★★½

    "What if it's some kind of monster?"

    Gotta love a movie that starts immediately with a decapitation!

  • Invader ZIM: Enter the Florpus

    Invader ZIM: Enter the Florpus

    ★★★½

    "I ate a baby there!"

    Some things don't change much over time and that's exactly the way people like it. As far as tone and intent Invader Zim hasn't changed at all and fans are going to love that. The major change here is the art direction and design, and that's all greatly improved!

    I'm not even a huge fan of this series and I was pretty into this: Some of the jokes are really great, there's some animation surprises throughout, and I never thought I'd say this but, I think I'd even watch another Invader Zim series if it continued from here!

  • Birdboy: The Forgotten Children

    Birdboy: The Forgotten Children

    ★★★½

    I don't think I fully "got it", but I really, really dug it.

    How come other countries can do animated features for adults, and when America tries it we just get Sausage Party?
