    Pokémon Detective Pikachu

    ★½

    Too many humans, not enough Pokeman.

    Honestly, feels super typical and predictable. There were a couple of curve balls that only make the end result more confusing.

    Dead Meat

    ★★★½

    Some highlights:

    'I enjoy fish.' 'Me too! I loooove eatin' pussy!'

    Lots of weird stuff in general, but a lot of fun and self-aware enough to succeed...kinda.

    Still, worth it especially with friends!

It's the doorway to someone's home. The stairs are dark and decrepit, many slants broken, its railing askew,…

    Shoah

    ★★★★★

    Coming in at over 9 hours, Shoah is not a journey for the weak. Just about every shot used in this is over 3 minutes, some stretching into 5 or 10 minutes. Furthermore, it's stripped of any kind of flashiness, dramatization or even archive footage. I watched this in four parts over the course of about half a month. I couldn't imagine watching it straight through. Many have, but I think it's better to at least split it in half…
