    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:

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

    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.

    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:

    It is. I believe it's a Netflix production.

    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:

    What are you watching and enjoying?

    Today, I finished a binge-watch of Evil Genius on Netflix which is fucking insane. Really amazing 4 episode crime docuseries. Check it out. Just now finished season three of Archer, which I felt was its best season.

    It's definitely the third best of the Coronetto Trilogy, but it is still a shitload of fun.

    The Open House: review forthcoming Logan: watched this with my sons tonight. I had to kind of walk them through it, because it was pretty intense. This is the best superhero character film period. In fact, I think if you had a top 10 of Marvel character films, most of them would be X-Men themed. This is by far the best. Truly beautiful. Brilliantly acted. An impressive film, which is something you can't say about most comic book movies. Features: 60 Shorts: 42 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches:

    Mystik U #2: I see where they're going with this. It's kind of a TV miniseries. Hogwarts in the DCU but more sophisticated. Interesting. Old Man Logan #34: consistently so good. Phoenix Resurrection The Return of Jean Grey #5: interesting ending. Interested to check out X-Men Red Songs for the Dead #1: no thanks. Tales of Suspense #101: I'm digging this. The Beautiful Death #5: why the fuck did I pick this up? Weird place to start. Not a particularly good story. But I had zero invested. So...whatever. The Realm #5: fun. The Silencer #1: cool start. I'm in for an other. Tarot Witch of the Black Rose #1, 2: I gave these a spin because 1, it's Jim Balent and 2, it's so long-running, I thought there must be something to it. Nope. Armstrong and the Vault of Spirits #1: Really fun. Avengers #679: really good. Batman #40: this was ok. I'm not sure why this story needed to be told. Daredevil #598: solid.
