Premise: A man’s obsession with his designer deerskin jacket causes him to blow his life savings and turn to crime.
It’s a tale as old as time: man buys a secondhand deerskin jacket. Man falls in love with said jacket and begins talking to it as if it’s a real person. Man begins converting his entire wardrobe to 100% deerskin. Man’s jacket tells him that it’s so great that it wants to be the only jacket left in the entire world. Continue reading →
In the midst of a global pandemic and stay at home orders all over the country, I am coping by watching movies and podcasting about them as if they were part of a Film Festival. In this episode, Kyrsten joins me as we review 2019’s Richard Jewell and the brilliant Middleditch & Schwartz improv specials on Netflix. We then chat about a bunch of other comedy streaming selections.
I liked it. A few really great laugh out loud moments and some good/disturbing "what the fuck has happened to the US" moments. The Giuliani scenes at the end are as advertised.Amongst all that, however, is a pretty sweet father-daughter story. It feels like they knew they had lightning in a bottle with Maria Bakalova and had Borat take a bit of a b […]
Much, much better than I expected it to be. It's a good palate cleanser after a couple of the other later Friday movies. The violence and gore effects were good.

Surprisingly not bad. I really like the way the movie incorporates both legends. I kind of wish it did more to expand Freddy's use of Jason to help bring him (Freddy) back into his victims' consciousness.The movie has plenty of super fun gore effects and some cool kills throughout it. The fighting between J-man and Fred-dog (I'm sorry) is fun […]
It's kind of insane to me how much of this movie actually kind of worked for me. The early 2000s low budget Syfy original movie aesthetic was kind of charming in some instances and Jason's first kill on the ship is really cool.It tried to return the franchise to its cheesy fun roots but ultimately doesn't really stick the "fun" part […]
Yikes. So I watched the unrated cut and, to its credit, there is some really good gore and body horror effects work in this movie.But that's about all this movie has going for it. It's a Friday the 13th movie in name only, which isn't even the case since New Line didn't have the rights to the name, apparently. So I've commended Frida […]
