    1. It was ok untill it went way off the rails stupid, i couldn’t finish when it became a highly fantastical fictionalized account of his life.

      1. Yeah no problem. I mean if you go in expecting nothing but farce i suppose its ok but it just went too too far off base for me to stay interested.

  1. I was just going to ask you what you thought of Weird as I didn’t make it farther than maybe 30 minutes if that. Thanks for being another who thought it was ridiculous.

  2. You watch a lot of movies. I haven’t been in a theater in a decade or more. Never felt comfortable in them. Last year I saw two movies at home: The People We Hate at the Wedding & Glass Onion.


    1. Trust me LA, i used to be on the letterboxd app. I was up to like 10,000 films seen from silent to whenever i was on the app (that number included foreign films as well).
