The Weird Al Yankovic "biopic" is absolutely hilarious, doubly so if you've seen UHF.

Also, Nic Cage is officially the GOAT, yes?

Withnail and I is streaming on Max. (Formally HBO Max, and not be confused with Cinemax.)

Felt like important information for this group.

It's always been streaming! For those of us who cut the cord so we could pay tens of thousands a month for generally redundant streaming services.

LOL, kidding. Or am I....

Listen, I might not have the best taste in movies in the world, but those Kenneth Branagh / Hercules Poirot movies (Murder on the Orient Express, Death on the Nile) are gorgeous, old school whodunits that are a fine way to blow two hours. Old fashioned slow-burn pacing? For sure. Melodramatic? Absolutely. But I was wrong on guessing the killers of both movies.

Also, Branagh the director doesn't get nearly enough credit as Branagh the actor. He really does a fantastic job of acclimating you in space / environment. Like you know where characters are going to /moving through as they go from place to place.

Anyway, I'm super stoked for Haunting in Venice in a few weeks.

I can't stand them. They just feel like masturbation sessions.

Hidden Target -- Netflix's absolutely brainless, stupid Jackie Chan movie with John Cena is totally worth it! Elderly Jackie still delivers. The movie feels like classic 80s Chan. And John Cena is weirdly magical paired with Jackie.

A Haunting in Venice is more of the same if you liked the other two Branagh / Poirot movies. Lush and dark, and vaguely "supernatural." I liked the way this one twisted around.

I hate the other ones. And slavishly watched them, as I will this one.
