It's worth noting that this is directed by Kasi Lemmons. While I can't speak to this film's quality, I certainly recommend Eve's Bayou as one of the 90s' forgotten, sweaty noirs.

Chris Morris’ new film The Day Shall Come

I found Four Lions a step down from his obviously incredible television work, but quite enjoyable. This one just looks bizarre.

Edward Norton’s Motherless Brooklyn
The book's not nearly my favorite Lethem but at least in terms of how it sets itself up in the unique mind of its protagonist and the overall mood-building, it's a nearly virtuosic work before it gets lost in the muddle of its just okay noir plot.

This trailer unfortunately comes off quite flat. I thought maybe Norton could soar with this character but I'm not seeing it just yet, and unfortunately the look of the movie seems to be begging to have been shot on celluloid and with a richer, more textured approach to the imagery.

All star cast for Between Two Ferns: the Movie— I was optimistic with the drowning Matthew McConaughey opening but then he did an actual “mispronouncing Benedict Cumberbatch’s name” joke and I realized my error

Mister America, an extension of Tim Heidecker’s podcast-turned-webseries-turned-etc. On Cinema at the Cinema, which — taken as a whole — I maintain is the most brilliantly performed and elaborately conceived work of comedy this century (at least).

I like that Gregg Turkington is briefly shown wearing a baseball cap advertising the 2002 Time Machine remake! Of course Gregg has a long standing interest in time travel movies, including his insightful description of the original Hot Tub Time Machine as "the Airplane! of our generation". What that says about 'our generation' is left delightfully unstated.

Is this a fictional movie? or a documentary?

Heidecker did a fictional murder trial about a year or so ago for comedic purposes and this is just an extension of that bit put into a piece that's movie length. Your mileage will vary though depending on how much you like his stuff.

I refuse to link to it here but is there any more unbearable trailer than the one for the neoliberal Charlie's Angels reboot? I may have seen it 150 times by now, and it never fails to baffle me as I contemplate who the fuck it was made for - the budget looks like it's on the level of Pamela Anderson's V.I.P. but I would wager that it's still not going to make much return at the box office.

The Charlie’s Angels trailer is indeed awful. And then there’s...

Tall Girl: The Film We’ve All Been Asking For

Worth watching for the expectedly excessive rate of utterances of the words “tall girl” by seemingly every character in this movie. Actually no it isn’t.

I'd love to have been a fly on the wall during the committee / computer simulation that scripted this.
