A family member works at BK in the Portland, OR, area and hates the extra work these new sandwiches cause. Because they are the only chicken item that arrives without breading, they require separate tools, separate washing, etc., to avoid cross-contamination from e-coli. And now the employees have to clean out tubs of… Read more
She locked him in there because he knows she’s a robot. She wants to go out in the world and live as human, and she can’t have someone letting everyone know she’s a robot. It’s a purely practical decision, and that’s the point. She doesn’t make emotional considerations for others. Not because she’s evil but because… Read more
Love the movie, but have issues with the ending. It seems to want viewers to celebrate Ava’s escape into the world, but I couldn’t get past her deliberate choice to lock Caleb in a room where he’d eventually starve to death. She could have left him behind without locking him in. Killing the guy just for being a love… Read more
This was a great performance in a movie with uniformly great ones. Vikander is, at different times, mysterious, aloof, sexy, robotic, human and very frightening, without ever slipping into “look at me, I’m aaaaaaaaaaacting.”
One of the best science fiction movies of all time and definitely one of the tops of this… Read more
God I genuinely forgot how top notch the nominations were that year. Not a Hillbilly Elegy in sight. I might have personally voted for Ronan in Brooklyn but still, good selection.
If we are playing the “____ should have won the Oscar for _____ instead of _____” game, I can think of better examples than this.

My favorite movie producer poster! Anyway, I got lucky in that I live in NY and got to see both films in the theater. Although I was basically one of like 10 people in the entire theater. I can remember sneaking beer into both of them and getting flat out BAKED in the parking lot before both as well. Great times.
I flat-out loved this movie as a kid, it was the culmination of my growing fandom with it after discovering reruns on Comedy Central. My dad took me to see it in San Jose and was shocked that he found it so funny - part of it was that he remembered seeing This Island Earth in theaters with his friends way back when… Read more
Some of their best riffs were actually them riffing on their own credits.
“Its the amazing Rando!”
“Puppet handlers? There’s no puppets in this movie.”
“Watch Rando the magician construct sets with his very mind!”
“We’d like to thank the people of St. Paul who are, in order, Anderson A...”
“Eastman! He came out of the east… Read more
I will say that without having to bitch they proactively sent a mea culpa and a credit in the account.
