  1. I implore everyone; even if you have no interest in seeing The Kissing Booth (I don't either.) PLEASE read the plot description on Wikipefia. It's as insane as the movie could possibly be. I can't te'll if it's written by a 12 year old girl or a snarky 45 year old man.

    Also, Downrange is one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

    1. Holy crap that entry is bananas. Reading it has brightened my morning though so thanks!

    2. The more I read it, the more I'm convinced it's a brilliant piece of comedy written by some divorced dad who had to watch this one his weekend visit with his daughter. This has made me so happy.

    3. this is written as if it was done as a blog review on wordpress, with the commentary on the film at the end.

    4. Hot off the press: As of 1200 Western Time the plot description is now gone. The only thing listed is the cast and:

      The Kissing Booth is a terrible romantic comedy film based on teen author Beth Reekles' sex fantasy novel of the same name, “The Kissing Booth”. The film was released on 11 May 2018, by Netflix.[1]

      Intriguing. Wikipedia is both the best and the worst.

    7. I knew that would happen, so I saved it into a Word document. A treasure like this cannot be lost. I'll post it to Twitter later.

  2. Haha, yeah man, The Kissing Booth was NUTS. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. And your basketball analogy is two-fold based on the massive height difference of the lead and Joey King. So bizarre.

    2. as in any romantic comedy, there's the breakup before the makeup right before the end. but because of Joey King relationship with the 2 boys, she has 2 breakups and 2 makeups.

      and we're not even talking about the 2 gay guys that we see flirting once or twice throughout the movie and then get together at the end. we don't know their names, they're not friends with any of the main characters. they don't even have lines. they're just there.

    3. "Join the conversation" could be tv/radio spot hook for any Joey King movie.

  3. i'm a big fan of the Tremors series. they're not as good as the first one, but they have their moments. some better than others. i haven't seen the last one yet, but i'm really curious.

    i really don't want a tv series of this though.

  4. Anyone who is far more musically talented than me please, please, please take the ball and run with Patrick's Goldfinger/Dream Warriors mashup theme

  5. SUCH a funny and entertaining show! Those impressions had me cracking up.

    I feel mostly the same about Dr No, and always wondered if I should have been appreciating it more. Solid first half, but gets pretty boring almost as soon as Honey shows up.

  7. Dr. No is a pretty sweet villain overall. Love the cold blooded kill Bond gets though in the room on the bed with the silenced gun. Gnarly for earlier Bond. Very akin to something we've seen in Craig movies.

    The World is Not Enough and Tomorrow Never Dies are both really good IMO. Love em both.
