    Batman versus Superman: Dawn of Justice (Director's Cut) 2016/2017

    "I don't deserve you, Alfred."
    "No, you don't. "

    For all the inadequacies that rabid fan boys were quick to jump on akin to hyenas with rabies, I think this Director's Cut more than satisfied the majority, and it's still a damn good film to me. Granted, the Bale trilogy will always be better in my own opinion, but Affleck did a good job with what he had for a script. Everything seemed to come together nicely in this version, providing a solid foundation for the next film (Snyder Cut to be exact), but the one thing I still can't get over is Jessie Eisenburg being cast as Luthor. He looks like a 14 year old going toe to toe with the heroes, and his whole Heath Ledger Joker act was just wrong. However, the good stuff outweighs the bad. It's been so long since I've watched this that I forgot a lot of the subplots and mini stories within the big story. I was happily reminded.

    Just watch Killer Klowns from Outer Space again if you need that clown fix. Or if you just like gore for the sake of gore, I'm sure the Human Centipede will satisfy your cravings. These movies are just gross negligence of the art form. Should have been rated X as in "you need X-Ray scans to figure out why you enjoy this."

    The Spirit of the Beehive (1973)

    “Everything in the movies is fake.”
    —Good slice-of-life movie about young sisters (one in particular) in 40s Spain. The girl becomes convinced the Frankenstein monster is living nearby after seeing the movie for the first time.

    -Oh, sure. That's when you see things, but they're not really there.
    Well, that can be caused by other things, too.”

    Terrifier 2 2022

    After hearing about supposed movie audiences running out of a theater upchucking in reaction to this Art the Clown dude, I wanted to see what all the hubbub was about. With the small possible exception of the first movie, this franchise is garbage. No redeeming qualities (unless you count the significance of an angelic entity in the 2022 film), no story to speak of, no backstory or plausible reason for survival, the character is just pure trash topped with ultra gore for a small amount of shock value. The whole "silent mime" shtick is stupid, even when used in the confines of a serial killer. Besides, we've had way better clown killers than this. Art is the type of character you want to feed to the big boys like Jason, Freddy, Michael, Leatherface, etc. They would get him to make a sound.

    Waste of time, don't bother with any of them. My 2 cents.

    1776+Poster.jpgimgmax=660.jpg

    “Never was such a valuable possession so stupidly and recklessly managed, than this entire continent by the British crown. Our industry discouraged, our resouces pillaged. Worst of all, our very character stifled. We’ve spawned a new race here, Mr. Dikinson. Rougher, simpler; more violent, more enterprising; less refined. We’re a new nationality. We require a new nation.”
    —50th anniversary. One of (if not my top) my favorite musicals and the only one I saw on Broadway.

    —Upgraded to Arrow’s 4K of the director’s cut.
