    Sorry to Bother You


    Best film of 2018. Brilliant critique of racial  capitalism. Perfect really. I was at 4.5 stars and then they introduced the horse people and I was, like: 5. Totally a 5. The posthuman revenge fantasy at the end was EVERYTHING 🐴🐗🐺

  • Idiocracy



    This movie basically predicted the future. It was a sleeper hit for sure and I’ve been recommending it to people ever since I rented it—wait for it—from Blockbusters. So many memorable lines. Mike Judge is a satirical genius. Up there with Twain and Mencken.

    The Haunting of Hill House

    Oof. I know a lot of people loved this one, but I found it so overwrought and overwritten and sooooo CW, which isn’t always a bad thing, but in this case, it was. Like: David Lynch for CW fans? Time is confetti and ghosts are wishes? Too many shitty analogies and someone in the writer’s room had a serious Poe complex. I just wanted them all to shut the fuck up! It’s like they had to pack in every #whitpersonproblem there is: heroin addiction, helicopter parenting, black mold. It was like The Money Pit, but not funny.

    I couldn’t finish it. Couldn’t even make it 1/2 way through.
