My kid is turning 13 soon so I guess he's in see pretty much any movie territory. Holding off on watching Barbarian so we can hopefully watch it with him this weekend.

Hoping to find the time to see Banshees of Inisherin in theatres.

Recently I rewatched The Wrestler and The Fighter because those movies make me think of each other and are both really good. Upon rewatch The Wrestler is the better movie but fucking hell Christian Bale is amazing in The Fighter.

The Fighter is pretty much just everyone holding Mark Wahlberg up since he hasn't really given a good performance outside of Pain & Gain in like 17 years

Nobody understands the Wahlberg genius. Not you, not you, and not you

Excited for this excellent Colin Farrell year to continue

I will fucking go to my grave yelling at the world that Donnie Wahlberg delivered some incredible performances.

Mark Wahlberg was good in I Heart Huckabee's and Pain and Gain but those are his only good performances beyond the 90s.

Barbarian was pretty good

It's really being underrated how much of a part Wahlberg played in everyone in The Fighter nailing their roles.

You can't just go generic Boston for where Mickey Ward grew up. The portrayal of his sisters is exactly how people from that area are. It seems like comedy/exaggeration, but it is not.

I watched Convoy because it came up for free on youtube. I highly regret my choices in life that lead me to Convoy. Good song, bad movie.

I'm sorry, are we going to just ignore that The Departed exists?

Black Panther was good. A little long but good. Loads of great performances and the costumes are pretty incredible

The opening sequence to GoldenEye is better than some entire Bond movies and the gloriously remixed Bond theme is a bigger reason why.

I think Carpenter might be senile at this point unfortunately. Put the kibosh on these things rather than EP'ing them.

Pretty sure Carpenter just wants to make money, get high, and watch basketball, and this helps accomplish that. And he’s still made/toured cool music very recently

Artistically it is completely unnecessary. Reminded me of when they tried to bring back Naked Gun a few years ago and I guess that is still happening, but now with Liam Neeson and the Lonely Island guy? Better sell than Ed Helms I guess
