Re: The Andrea Riseborough nomination "controversy"

That's what the Oscar chat is: one big group cringe/eye-gouge.

Re: The Menu (New Movie) Honest Reviews & Comments

If The Menu was just "eat the rich" I wouldn't have liked it as much, since that's a comically trite sentiment. It was good because it was broader than that, mocking elites of all kinds.

It was similar to the reaction I've had to a lot of PTA films, but I felt like it was missing the things that usually would (or could) redeem them for me.

Re: MoFo Fantasy Football 2022 - The Season
