    the original Karate Kid... and you know what, this is a really cute movie. Sure, it's about how a racial stereotype teaches a brat how to be the alpha male in his high school, but this is some fun shit.

    rewatched gremlins and gremlins 2 this week (after showing my best friend who's in town the key & peele gremlins 2 sketch). definitely didn't remember that the first movie gets almost as ridiculous as the second one (especially that whole long scene in the bar). both are still fun and silly, and the first one actually has some genuinely scary music. also, they should have brought billy's mom in for the second one, because she single-handedly killed three gremlins in the first movie. she knows how to get shit done.

    Gremlins 2 is underrated, it just embraces its core silliness more completely than the original

    Just watched King Ralph for the first time in at least 15 years. That movie is criminally underrated.

    There's a new series on Amazon Prime, called Too Old To Die Young. Each of its 10 episodes is written AND directed by Niclas Winding Refn. It stars Miles Teller and is highly stylized, a typical Refn affair. I love it and I think it's the best show since the return of Twin Peaks.

    Just finished it and I am not sure what to think of it. Stylish - yes, some good ideas - sure, but man, was it slow and bleak.

    Any idea if there will be a second season?

    Yeah, it was bleak and slow, but it also had some very strong social/political undertones... with the way Diana and Yaritza were portrayed, the speeches they (or Viggo) gave, the stuff that was frequently coming from the car radio (and resembled some Alex Jones type) whenever someone was driving.

    But I felt there were some really funny and hilarious moments in there, too.

    And it had some moments for the ages... for example when Spoiler: Viggo rained down on the trailer park like an atom bomb or Spoiler: the car chase scene from episode 5. It felt very "Lynch-y" at times as well...

    I'm not counting on a second season... just look with how little fanfare Amazon was promoting it in the end.

    Btw. here's a great interview with Refn about the show:

    Really intruiged to see that show, looks very cool but I haven't had the time to watch these long episodes and if I do, I want to see them in a row.

    I also don't get why people have the urge to read so much into Refn's work like the Neon Demon. Why can't things be stylish and arty for the sake of it? I enjoy looking at these long ass meditations of his. Dude's got style and I dig it.

    I got a kick out of Suspiria (2018.)

    I have NOT seen the original, but, i loved this one, as it is a competent art house horror movie, that's actually pretty fucking scary.
    Such things are few and far between.

    Ughh, what a let down Toy Story 4 was. Jokes on me for thinking that Rotten Tomatoes can always be trusted. It's not a shit movie per se, and a Pixar animation could never go below 5/10 because it so damn good, that it's a joy to watch. The story had some nice elements, like the lessons learned and morals, there were a few genuine laughing out loud moments, and the fork guy was 10/10.

    But there is no way the same people made the stories and jokes of episode 3 and 4. Maybe the only reason I was disappointed in this episode was that the last one had no right being as amazing as it was. Anway, I don't want my money back, and it's great that maybe a new generation can experience the joy of the series, but I'm not sure if I want them to continue the saga. Not that I wouldn't watch ep 5-6-7... anyway, but I suppose you are better off eventually ending it, right?

    the new Lion King movie doesn't deserve a thread of its own. FUCK THIS MOVIE. Jesus... What an incredibly horrible film.

    It's a stupid 90's kids movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger in it. I enjoy it. It's not my favorite film by him but it's far from unwatchable like people act like.

    Been watching Justified, just burned through Ozarks while pet sitting. Having Netflix access doesn't suck. About to watch The Dirt.
