I know this exact comparison has been made a thousand times already but this movie's plot line was more convoluted and harder to follow than an episode of Viva la Bam without Don Vito's subtitles.

I haven't been this excited for a movie in a while, so it had some big standards to live up to. The trailer might be the greatest trailer I have ever seen, and while it didn't quite live up to that, it did feature some amazing cinematography, special effects and acting performances. DiCaprio is going to win the Oscar, but Tom Hardy has become the Scottie Pippin of acting, not strong enough to carry a team on his own, but is the perfect 2nd banana to complement whoever the leading actor is. My one complaint with this movie is that Hardy wasn't established as evil enough. His character wasn't exactly likable but a lot of his actions were based on pragmatism rather than being evil, which would have made for a more interesting story. Kind of like the villain in the remake of True Grit where you wait the whole time for this evil mastermind but then it just turns out to be Josh Brolin who seemed to eat a lot of paint chips as a kid.

Spectre
Spectre (2015)

Thankfully there were no invisible cars, laser fights in outer space or surfing on ice tsunamis, but this has to go down as one of the worst Bond movies in the history of the franchise. From the worst Bond theme song sequence in recent memory to somehow turning Christoph Waltz into one of the least menacing Bond villains ever, this movie is interesting in no ways and unmemorable in every way.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

The critics gave this a 75%? Did they forget to shimmy the decimal point in between the seven and the five, because this movie was TERRIBLE! I really liked the first movie and expected some falloff, but this was like jumping out of a commercial airliner, through the exploding Hindenburg blimp and into the Mariana's Trench. The jokes were like paint by number ripoffs from the first movie that all fell flat and the randomness of the first movie could not be replicated because of how predictable the "random" moments were. There were a couple moments that made me slightly expel some breath out of my nose for a second, but there was not a single time when I legitimately laughed. Watching actual news anchors do stories on pediatric AIDS or senior abuse is funnier than this movie.

Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief

As a Libertarian, it takes a lot for me to root for the IRS to release the Kraken on a private organization like this, but the Church of Scientology has cultured the perfect petri dish of crazy and evil to make me root for the tax man to shut their shit down. Most of this information isn't exactly new, but the documentary, based off of a book by Lawrence Wright, does a good job of humanizing people's motivations for joining Scientology in the first place, while at the same time demonizing the SS-esque tactics of the Church leadership over the past couple of decades. Maybe it's just my thetans speaking out of turn, but I would love for nothing else than the house of cards that is Scientology to be systematically dismantled by a guy named Larry.
