Thanks, glad to hear from someone who has already seen it. I was definitely on the fence for a lot of the movie, but the last 30 minutes or so sold me on its twisted shit. I could absolutely see walking away from this hating it, though, but honestly it's nice to have a movie about music and fame that doesn't play it safe or easy. (Looking at you, A Star Is Born.) Obviously we differ on the takeaway, hope you didn't think it was a total waste of time. Curious to know what you thought of Spring Breakers, cus I feel like that's a film it has a lot in common with tonally and has been similarly divisive.

"This site" has a lot of different people with a lot of different opinions and also I'm not deriding anything in this article, I'm talking about a film that has a very specific point of view. There's no right or wrong here.

Amazon Prime has an OK selection... old Match Game, Family Feud, Password, that sort of thing. Stuff that used to be on Game Show Network but if you don't have cable anymore it hits the spot.

Art of Doubt is honestly pretty good! But I couldn't justify putting it above any of the others, maybe partially because it's still so new.

I don’t need all bangers! I just don’t really feel like the not-bangers are layered or textured enough to justify being there. But I’m obviously glad people are finding that in this, and I want the best for SOPHIE.

i gave it the amount of attention as it deserves (very little) but i just revisited and i see now that hologram cardi & rita are edited together to look like they "kiss" when they were definitely never in the same room. i stand corrected.
