The one with satire and “satire” and magic octopuses.
It’s an indie movie with vaudeville, period costumes, theatre, and death.
This is partly me going to TIFF and partly me talking to Roku.
In which I scratch a bunch of things off my to-watch list, with terrifying results.
I reviewed Tater Tot & Patton for PopMatters. Liked Jessica Rothe; did not like this thing about controlling women.
In which peer pressure from Letterboxd slowly takes over my life.
I’m amazing at predicting what I will and won’t like and then watching what I don’t like anyway.
In which I liked the Avengers thing more than I thought I would, and not just because they all died.
Including the stuff I saw at TIFF before I was too exhausted to keep going to stuff at TIFF.

In which I like a lot of things more than I thought I was going to.
As promised, I have a lot more to say about this movie (that I liked) over at PopMatters (external link).
In which Thoroughbreds may become my all-time favourite movie and The Dark Tower ruins the one thing I liked about it.
I talk more about Annihilation and its sale to Netflix over at PopMatters (external link).
Annihilation, Jumanji, and Pitch Perfect 3 are all better than they sound like they’re going to be.
I will forever ask myself why I was willing to watch a reboot of Star Trek, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but not Blade Runner 2049, which is better than both of them.
