Random movie and tv thoughts

I got halfway through What We Do in the Shadows before turning it off. It isn't bad, but it doesn't take 90 minutes to tell this joke. Mockumentaries, I'm finding, just aren't for me.

Mockumentaries are, by nature, very difficult to pull off. The jokes tend to run a lot more dry, there's less ambient sound, and if the actors aren't dedicated to embracing the absurdidty of what they're discussing, I've actually found that shows like Parks and Rec or Modern Family where they embrace the confessional aspect but never go for the full "They're filming us" part are some of the best examples.

Yeah. I'll just watch The Room again with a few beers. 

This has too many people who know how to make a movie involved, rather than it being a glorious accident. Wiseau's sitcom was garbage too. He gifted us with The Room. That was a perfect storm of once in a lifetime insanity. We need to let Tommy Wiseau go. Let him go back to his home planet.

If nothing else, they got the look right.

I mean, there's no way to know until it actually airs, but I'm still giving it a shot.

But on topic, Felicia Day definitely didn't seem threatening. I've never seen the show, so it didn't seem odd to me.

How many more of these big action blockbusters does Cruise have left in him? He's 54. At some point in the next few years it's going to look laughable.

I know there is another Mission Impossible coming where he has supposedly been training for years for some elaborate stunt, but at some point he's going to have to accept that time is a real thing that can't be stopped.

But you forget: he has the power of Scientology behind him. Thetans make you age, right?

I was out at one of the local Used Game and DVD stores today and came across this beauty:

This is either going to be the best bad things ever or the worst bad thing ever!
