    Solo: It's a fun movie. Not bad but definitely a "Background noise" movie. Mean Girls: One of my best mates hadn't seen it and didn't realize all the memes that came from this brilliant film. Films: 39 Made For TV: 1 Straight to DVD: 1

    Uncle Buck is truly an overlooked John Hughes gem. For me, it's his top film.

    Uncle Buck: probably a top 3 John Hughes film. I watched this probably 50 times as a kid. I can still recite Macaulay Culkin's questions scene and my kids freaked out when I did. Totally crushed on the girl in this one and I had great taste as a 9 year old. Features: 63 Shorts: 42 Documentaries: 3 Rewatches:

    52. The Sound of Things Falling, Juan Gabriel Vasquez (translated by Anne McLean): Fuck. This came into my life right when I needed it. I picked this up remaindered a while ago, and finally got to it this week. To say that a man’s fascination with a friend he saw murdered, his daughter’s interest in the father she’d never really known, and a story that slowly comes to an end but isn’t really resolves hit a few buttons is to say the least here. It’s the same wistfulness as Borges, and the fascination with how the political plays out with the personal that I saw in Bolaño, with just wonderful writing in general. And an honest look at the consequences of typical Latin American machismo/sleeping around and a woman who is putting up with the protagonist and trying to be understanding of his PTSD, but also turns out to have a spine when he up and leaves her to suddenly meet the daughter of his friend. I’m probably going to have to see if there’s any more of his stuff remaindered.

    Just purely obnoxious storytelling, terrible art and an excessive amount of pages.

    Men in Black: Haven't seen it in years. While it's a bit goofy in some areas, it still holds up rather well, barring a few unfortunate shots of the World Trade Center. Films Watched: 39

    Also, it's only a quick shot, but I swore that when you see Vanisher for a second that it's and I was right.

    It was always a risk casting the actual guys involved. I mean, good on them and if I were in the same position, I'd have done the same thing (i.e. taking the film deal - I'm probably far too cowardly to actually tackle a suicide bomber), but a filmmaker of Eastwood's ilk should know better.

    WWE is better than it used to be with everybody being friends as soon as they change alignment. That bugged me in the 80's and 90's. But it still makes no sense that two characters who hated and basically tried to kill each other can even tolerate each other's presence, much less be friends or even allies. If who someone tried to kill me was being beaten up, I am not running out to save them.

    Dubs had a good take: It's too bad Impact isn't real competition.

    Weird Dreams

    Hahha! i killed a snake with my lawnmower a couple days ago. It was like "Is that a -- *vdddt* Oh shit!" I dreamt the other night that I was sitting at a patio table beside a huge dumpster and all of a sudden a huge weird high pitched noise kicked up and I was like "that's the rats in the dumpster!" and then Ib woke up at 4:30-ish AM to that exact noise from the birds outside my bedroom window. My neighbours cut down two dead trees in their front yard and that clearly pissed off the birds that were coming back to their hangout spot early in the morning after a night of partying.

    Deadpool 2: a little bit scatterbrained - though I guess that makes sense - but still a really fun time at the movies. REALLY violent. Some nice surprises as far as character appearances, but real surprises as far as the amount of screen time for advertised character appearances...if that makes sense. Never did I think I would see a comics accurate depiction of Cable in a film and Brolin was fucking incredible as that character. Script, performance and tone-wise it was all perfect handling of that character in this universe. I REALLY look forward to the X-Force movie. 30 For 30: Nature Boy: this was a rematch, but I'm pretty sure the first watch happened last year. Still great. The whole Reid/Ashley thing kills me still. Crying like a baby. Again, crushing hard on Ashley. Features: 62 Shorts: 42 Documentaries: 3 Rewatches:

    Weird Dreams

    Last night I had a dream that I was being attacked by a giant snake. I woke up too frightened to move. I wondered what it meant. Reproductive problem? change? Not an hour ago, I heard the word "python" and then it all came clear. The township between where I live and where I work has had a python reported missing. So I am relieved to know that my subconscious was reminding me that there is a 14 foot snake on the loose somewhere near my house...... Oh No.

    The 15:17 To Paris What a terrible movie for such an interesting story. It is so boring. These guys stopped a terrorist on a train in France, but that is only about five minutes of the movie. The biggest problem is that they played themselves, and they are terrible. It felt like I was watching someone's vacation video half the time. Except for this one event, they lived boring lives that weren't worth putting in the movie. Clint Eastwood directed it, and he tried to cram in some Christian propaganda for no reason so it felt like I was watching one of those God's Not Dead movies. When the mom said "My God is bigger than your statistics" I almost turned it off.

    Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles #2: solid. Iceman #10: not sure where this fits into continuity based on what's going on over in All-New Wolverine, but this was decent. The worst issue of the run so far. Infinity Countdown Adam Warlock #1: not as good as I'd hoped. I have found little to enjoy in Allred's recent work, but it never has to do with the art. Iron Fist #77: ok, I'm out. This was completely unremarkable. Mother Panic/Batman Special #1: more Morrison fanfic wankfest. Rogue & Gambit #2: fun. Interesting take on the old Quicksilver in therapy issue. Couples therapy where one of them can't remember when they first kissed because they were mind-controlled at the time. Loved it. She-Hulk #162: pretty much a slide in quality in this book, but there's only one more. Spirits of Vengeance #5: had I knew this series was coming beforehand this would have been a huge disappointment. But I was surprised when it debuted, so it just sucks overall. Swamp Thing Winter Special #1: beautiful. I don't usually like Kelley Jones' art, but his work on the silent Len Wein issue included here was pretty beautiful. Shadow Batman #5: not very good. Twister Romance #1: holy shit, this was terrible. Officially a "fuck this book." VS #1: Ivan Brandon writes Esad Ribic into doing a future gladiators in space book and it's so much Metal Hurling worship, that all my alarm bells are going off. Loved it. X-Men Gold #21: really good. X-Men Red #1: I loved this. Young Monster In Love #1: this was ok. Some stories better than others. None of them were great.

    Cargo: review forthcoming Amanda Knox: after watching Evil Genius, I wanted another crime doc, but a one and done. This was solid. What a fucked up case. What a compelling woman at the centre of it. Good shit. Lots to unpack, but let's just say for now that Shepherd Smith is a scumbag. He has maybe three lines in archival footage in this doc and two of them are pure racist/sexist assholery. Then again, maybe he only has two lines. Features: 61 Shorts: 42 Documentaries: 2 Rewatches:
