  1. America: The Motion Picture I thought it was hilarious. Utterly dumb, mindless fun and violence for 90 minutes.
  2. Mortal Kombat (2021): This movie starts off so damn well, and then, from the 10-minute mark on, it is just a cascading snowball of bullshit and nonsense. Awful. I'll probably be bringing back the Tirades podcast to cover this piece of shit.
  3. The Mitchells vs. the Machines was absolutely wonderful. Poignant, hilarious, well voice-acted, and some great, eclectic animation.
  4. Coming to theatres in June 2084... DARK CLAW.
  5. https://youtu.be/86JYR7bK6RU And yes, that is MIKE PATTON singing the Ninja Turtles theme song.
  6. The Nightmare Before Christmas It still holds up to this day. And the score...my god, the score is nigh-unbeatable.
  7. I can't fathom how anyone gives WWE money anymore. Such a shitty company led by legitimately one of the scummiest rich people on the planet.
  8. Yeah, that one is fantastic. Another one I loved was, "The sea giveth and the sea taketh away...and this time, the sea......tooketh......my sword...."
  9. Watching Norsemen right now. Really enjoying it--hilarious dialogue and a shout-out to the great costuming.
  10. And instantly, when I saw that news, I lost interest in it altogether. Sigh.
  11. Still voting Winter Soldier, as it is my favorite MCU film, but First Avenger is probably #2.
  12. I agree with Dubs' assessment that it didn't need a deep, complex narrative or anything because it was a 100% style movie. But I do enjoy it even with its flaws. Top Dollar alone is worth the viewing time.
  13. I truly enjoy Infinity War, but GOTG still beats it for originality and fun.
  14. Cap, easily. This just reminds me, I need to rewatch The Rocketeer.
  15. Cappy. Front to back just brilliant performances from everyone.
  16. Homecoming has my single favorite scene of any MCU film--the "dad chat." Keaton owns the world in that scene. But Winter Soldier is my favorite MCU film by a huge margin. It stands out from the rest of the universe with its unique espionage story. I won't be voting against it at any point.
  17. The Avengers still holds up. I can't even watch a lot of Civil War anymore because of all the problems with it. Good fight scenes, though.
  18. IM3 is a complete mess to me. Guardians is one of the funniest movies I've seen in the last ten years.
  19. "No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen" is pretty great for leftist political discussion.
