    Wanda Sykes: Not Normal

    ★★

    Weak set, getting to be hyper-typical “standup” at this point. A parody of a farce of a good comedy routine. And I like Wanda. 😶

  • David Cross: Making America Great Again

    David Cross: Making America Great Again

    ★★★½

    Was a little slow to start, but when DC starts to get into perfectly paced and bitingly bitter commentary on religion, politics and gun control it really starts to pop. Not for the faint of heart, and some cringeworthy moments to be expected. Probably not to the level of some older specials, but solid if you are a fan.

    The End of the Tour

    ★★★½

    Very competent filmmaking, but I started to question how much was a well constructed movie vs a potentially much stronger book as the source material. Haven’t read it, so not sure. Typical Eisenberg performance, smart, a little smarmy and dickish. Fine Segel performance as well, a little aloof. Overall piqued my interest to explore the life of David Foster Wallace further.

    Fighting criminal Santas, jet packs and bad Sinbad one-liners, oh my! The Arnold shit is great, and RIP Phil Hartman.
