I base my worldview on the episode 'Grey Dawn'. Old drivers are a menace to society and I want them gone as much as Texas Lt Gov Dan Patrick.


Amazon kept advertising  Blow the Man Down. 6/10. It's trying to be Fargo in Maine but doesn't succeed. Acting and direction was fine but the script needed more time.

But again, well done critiquing something you have no knowledge of.
everyone has seen idiocracy, dilbert. i'm pretty sure every college frat watches it.

personally i get my spiritual outlook from 'freddy got fingered'.

I love Zombie movies and was interested in seeing a funny spin on it. My only complaint is that the movie feels very 2004 (the year it came out) but in an uncomfortable way. I didn't get a nostalgia trip from this one.

Between the two, I would probably put Army of Darkness on. But there's a number of things contributing to that bias. It was one of the movies I wasn't allowed to rent as a kid, and one of the first in my early movie collection. Also, the skeleton army is amazing if you're into practical effects.

Funny scene from Dilbert's favorite movie that I remembered due to a reddit discussion regarding urban-rural population growth.

I never actually watched this movie but I know this scene, the state of the union scene, and the fact that plants do not drink Gatorade.

it's so funny to me that dilbert seriously gets his life-view from this movie. a satire with all the depth of a reddit edgelord.

this is the occasion for his spiritual epiphany? jesus christ.

Most of my worldview is informed by the early season of the Simpsons. I even already have my final words ready just in case COVID takes me out.

Well Reddit does compare Idiocracy to current events a lot.


The Descent - 7/10, good horror movie but the mutants did not age well.
The Descent 2 - 3/10, awful in about every way.
Solarbabies - 3/10, ambitious 80s trash. The worst of B movie music, only 1 good scene, somehow cost 25 million. Ok as a comedy. I don't like Lukas Haas in anything I've seen him in. This, Mars Attacks, Witness and I don't know what else might as well be a 2x4.

Didn't people watch Mars Attacks primarily to see celebrities get disintegrated by ray guns?

Dawn of the Dead, 2004, As a movie 8/10 as a Zombie movie 10/10.

Interestingly this is Zack Snyder's first movie. The movie really puts our ongoing pandemic into perspective. We are very unfortunate to not have zombies of some sort. All of this waiting around to die is a lot less fun than it would be if I could be a raider or barricaded in a mall.

I'm sorry you don't get to act out your wildest Hannibal Lecter fantasies on hapless, tied-up zombie apocalypse survivors.

I think you have me all wrong Newbie. I just want to ride my motorcycle around, fight Zombies, and not have to cut my hair. No innocent people would be harmed.

rewatching old adam curtis documentaries with all my free time (not all of them have aged well, and they should be taken with a healthy fistful of salt).

this one's premise and material is so relevant to the Jay's of this world that it's untrue. hilarious.



lots of hayek, 'game theory', selfishness, etc.

World War Z, I don't know what to score it. I am disappointed that it had literally nothing at all to do with the book besides the name. And it even changed a lot of the "rules" of the book's universe. I love zombie movies but this still felt a little boring.

Watched Hail! Caesar at long last. I enjoyed the overall experience, but it sure didn't feel like much of a story, but a very loosely connected sequence of sketches (I know, Coen bros, but still). I liked all the jokey nods and references in it, and was legitimately amused by the below.

i mean, a movie with a classically choreographed hollywood dance number about taking it in the ass. it's got something going for it.

i thought it was a pretty funny movie. the portrayals of famous marxist philosophers was spot on.

it's similar to 'burn after reading'. just watching the usual coen bros cast be funny is enough for me. not a bad way to spend 90 minutes.

Never watch this unless you've had some alcohol. It is not the worst thing I've seen but its up there.

Star Wars 9, finally. About as silly as you could expect from a franchise on #9. Most memorable part of the final trilogy is easily the Rey leitmotif, but it isn't very long. The effects should have carried it, they were obscured in haze and particles and hard to appreciate.

Spoiler (highlight to read):
It felt like Ian McDiarmid wasn't allowed to properly spread his camp wings and carry the movie. What was the point of hiding him for the first two? The reveal didn't surprise or subvert expectations.

Also why was he able to take on a giant fleet with force lightning, but unable to blast through a saber guard. The intensity was obviously reduced, but why.

I wish he fell asleep in the middle of his reveal speech and then woke up resuming some different part of it.
