The Running Man (1987)

“In a dystopian America, a falsely convicted policeman gets his shot at freedom when he must forcibly participate in a TV game show where convicts, runners, must battle killers for their freedom.”

Check out Double Impact’s thoughts here.

I’m Thinking of Ending Things (2020)

“Full of misgivings, a young woman travels with her new boyfriend to his parents’ secluded farm. Upon arriving, she comes to question everything she thought she knew about him, and herself.”

I tried finding a good way to say this but I simply can’t. So here you go. This movie is the epitome of someone smelling their own farts. People with say how gloriously beautiful it is with its existential surreal way of weaving walls of logic…I threw up in my mouth a bit. It’s a movie that isn’t as deep as it wants to appear and I feel the cringey drama that it’s also telling would have been much better than “mind trippiness” of everything. None of what it is trying to say hit home with me. I understood it, I just didn’t like the way Kaufman tells his narrative.

I will say that I till think there is plenty good here though. The four main actors play their parts perfectly and deliver solid performances. Is Jesse Plemmons one of the best cringe/awkward actors ever? That’s a hard yes. I enjoy the bleak nature Kaufman creates with an uncomfortable setting that should feel warm and cozy. He creates a gorgeous aesthetic that acts more like a horror movie than anything. If you are a fan of Kaufman, I feel like you will love it. he is hit or miss with me. (3.5/5)

Lady Snowblood (1973)

“A strikingly beautiful young woman is raised from birth to be a deadly instrument of revenge against the swindlers who destroyed her family.”

This felt like a violent revenge ballet with a little cookyness that helped make this an enjoyable watch. It’s a film that is a must-watch of Quentin Tarantino and Kill Bill fans. Some fun twists and turns with plenty of blood squirts and limbs to go around. (4/5)

Queen & Slim (2019)

“A couple’s first date takes an unexpected turn when a police officer pulls them over.”

As high as some of the stylish flairs are at moments, there are times where it drags and just feels like another movie. Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith had some solid chemistry but I felt like I wanted more character development for them. Sadly, the rest of the players just felt like unbelievable caricatures. I definitely see some potential in Melina Matsuokas’ debut film and will look forward to future projects of hers. (3.25/5)

Lovecraft Country (S1.Ep1-2)

The main actors are terrific with Jurnee Smollettt-Bell stealing my heart a little bit. She is a sparkplug that shows plenty of range. However, this story just isn’t doing anything for me so far. I’m willing to give it another episode but if it doesn’t hook me soon, I’m out.

Raised by Wolves (S1.Ep1-4)

I’m not loving this either but I am interested where it’s going. The world seems interesting and the science vs. religion aspect is appealing. I’m not hooked but I’m giving it a few more episodes to see where it goes. It feels like one of those shows that will settle in and be good or go off the rails in a bad.

Weekend Wasteland launches in 3, 2, 1…
