Everything is a work in progress.

I think all unsuccessful men over the age of 35 should be systematically exterminated.

If you’re heterosexual, over 35 years of age, not currently in a long-term relationship of some kind, and/or don’t have kids, you’re done. Congrats.

And to get everyone on board with this, we’ll start exclusively with…

I haven’t seen any establishment articles written on it yet, but I believe the era known as Peak TV ended in 2019. …

I didn’t see the first Venom. “Turd rolling down the street.” I’m not paying someone for that.

12 year olds will love this movie, as intended. The audience was all parents with kids and they seemed enthralled.

This is a dumb, violent, PG-13 flick that makes really good use of…

I’ll still be around on Medium, but I’m going to start re-posting new drafts of my short stories on my Substack here.

The MCU is a feat to behold. It’s reached the point where it’s formulaic, but the formula is so perfect so you don’t really care. They are a genre all their own, much like martial arts films or westerns. And they keep bringing in new things, adding freshness onto the…

The best films are ones that surprise you with their brilliance. Pig is special. It features an old lion returning to form and a wicked new talent born into the public consciousness. I will remember where I was and how I felt upon seeing this for the first time.

Go…

I didn’t really know who Anthony Bourdain was till he died. I was aware of him, but never watched anything he’d done save his cameo in The Big Short. After he passed I spent that summer watching Parts Unknown and really enjoyed it.

Bourdain was good at what he did…

I hadn’t planned on going to see this, skipped it upon its release in May. I randomly saw a WEBM from the movie that was so ridiculous I thought it had to be fake. It wasn’t.

I loved Gillespie’s I, Tonya. One of my favorite movies of 2017. I also…
