  1. Holt and Peralta in witness protection was so goddam funny.
  2. De Palma swears he hadn’t seen Deep Red when he made Dressed to Kill, but I dunno… I think everything you need to know about where his head was with that movie is that he based Keith Gordon’s character on his own experiences as a teen spying on his father’s extramarital affairs at the request of his mother. It’s fine as a dry-run for Blow Out, which I consider his best movie.
  3. I haven’t seen May December, but the trailer gave me the vibe of a movie that treaded into self-parody and camp like Whatever Happened to Baby Jane and Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte. I think Nolan is a lock for best director and Gerwig for best screenplay, even though personally I thought Oppy is Nolan’s best screenplay and that Greta directed the hell out of Barbie.
  4. He looks like the drummer or bassist in an early aughts melodic hardcore band.
  5. We still go to the movies fairly often, but a lot of the time we’ll go on a discount day and just buy the seats on either side of us so we don’t have anyone right on top of us. We’re so into the ritual of it that sometimes when we do movie night at home we’ll hit the concession stand at AMC and bring it back to the house.
  6. They should’ve snuck The Good Dinosaur in there and hoped no one noticed.
  7. It’s like the Tarantino thing where he’ll just do television when he needs a paycheck or feels like working. Lord and Miller are developing a Spider-Man Noir series for Prime; I don’t know if they’ll necessarily want someone in Cage’s age range or price tag, but it’s not impossible.
  8. I’m going to wait until the Napoleon director’s cut comes out. I don’t think it’s been announced yet, but it’s Ridley Scott, so you know he’s got one of those sumbitches in the chamber.
  9. Cast a Deadly Spell has a loose sequel directed by Paul Schrader called Witch Hunt that I remember liking. Dennis Hopper plays Lovecraft.
  10. I’m pretty sure that’s a video game thing, but I’m also going to assume the Black League were the folks looking for the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
  11. Wow, those all sound terrible. I’m getting motion sickness just thinking about the Greengrass one.
  12. Punk being aware of FSW will always be my favorite DVDVR lore.
  13. You’re saying the guy who wears a crown, loves to eat fast food, and hangs around high schoolers wouldn’t be Jerry Lawler?
  14. I saw the Dolly video for the Queen cover, and it was basically just We Are the Champions but with a bit of We Will Rock You thrown in as an outro.
  15. Freeway II is one of those sequels that’s basically a remake of the first one, but it’s based on Hansel and Gretel, and Lyonne totally gets the tone. I haven’t seen it in like 20 years, but there’s a “twist” that wouldn’t be acceptable today in any movie unless it was financed by Moms 4 Liberty. The writer/director of those movies seemed like he would be a fresh new voice in genre cinema, but after Freeway II he made Tiptoes, and that was a wrap on his career.
  16. One of my earliest memories is seeing the part in Omen IV where the snake handler nun gets her concentration broken by seeing a picture of the kid and the snakes bite her until she dies. EEK.
  17. I miss watching forty minutes of recaps of shows I already watched plus a Flash Funk vs Tom Brandi match, and then sticking around for an episode of USA High.
  18. To quote the Deadlock boys, “This is the least cool man in the history of wrestling, how did he change the industry twice?”
  19. “She’s her step-aunt, so it’s cool.”
  20. I was thinking the other day that they can only get away with that tax write-off thing so many times before it starts affecting public perception of their movie slate and makes it harder to get talent to sign on to their projects.
  21. That looks like it could be Happy Death Day 3, and I’m all about it. Horror Icon Justin Long always brings the goods.
  22. All I know is that I switched to showers after the first time I saw My Cousin Vinny, because elementary school me knew it was time to put childish things away and Marisa Tomei needed a man.
  23. I never think about how long Green Day has been around. At work the other day, I heard someone walking by singing She, and when I turned around it was a 60-year-old man. Of course, I’m also never prepared for the oldies station that used to play The Supremes and Neil Sedaka to have on Red Hot Chili Peppers.
