Hitler Lives

You can really taste the Dr. Seuss in this.

Chris Chan - A Comprehensive History

Geno Samuel's attention to detail really places this series as one of, if not the best YouTube documentaries.

Borderless

I feel like it tends to miss the forest for the trees, but it wasn't half bad.

Bill Burr: Paper Tiger

Possibly Burr's weakest hour special. Burr has a similar style to Hicks or Carlin in that his jokes are more so humorous statements of truth, than they are jokes. This style of comedy works best when the comic isn't stating the obvious, but Burr's jokes in this special consist of statements already made 200 times prior. Burr might state them more concisely and in a more entertaining style than anyone before him, but that's really the only saving grace of this special; Burr hasn't changed.

Not unfunny or bad in any way, but nothing all that original either. Most enjoyable if you've been living under a rock for 5 years.

Manos: The Hands of Fate

This is one of those films you either find terrible, or develop a lifelong obsession with. The movie is terrible, don't get me wrong. It's just so interesting, and bizarre. The backstory is amazing. The world around the film is fascinating. I know way more useless Manos trivia than I could ever dispense at a bad movie party, and just look at my username. Yeah it doesn't make any sense, but this movie just grips some people.

If the bug happens to bite you, look into Ben Solovey's interview on Reject Radio, Thinkbolt's "Talk to the Hand" podcast, Hotel Torgo and some of the subsequent documentaries, and if they're still around, try to find some of the old threads on tumblr, as this film got really popular there about 7 years ago, for whatever reason.

Jordan Peterson & Slavoj Žižek - Happiness: Capitalism vs. Marxism

Peterson seems to have a limited understanding of traditional marxism, Žižek seems to have a limited understanding of discourse. Žižek is very much a cynic, and I really do like that, but somewhere in this mess Peterson made a decent defense of capitalism, so I have to side with him.

I'd pay for a clap-free version of this. The audience is awful. To the point of absurdity, almost. Maybe hold the next one in Japan. Even if an English speaking audience shows up it'll be no problem, they don't even clap at boxing matches.

Once Upon a Time in America

One of my all time favorites. If you ask me it's both Leone's and De Niro's best. Most people remember De Niro as Jimmy the Gent, Jake LaMotta, Travis Bickle, or young Vito Corleone, but to me he will always be David "Noodles" Aaronson, streetwise Jewish kid from the Lower East Side turned criminal kingpin. The famed "European Cut" is great, but if possible go after the 251 minute directors cut. You'll be glad you did.

Vanishing Waves

To me it was more annoying than anything.

Don't Look in the Basement

Probably the worst Video Nasty. First saw it when I was thirteen and hated it. Not even the (somewhat wonky) tits impressed me. Even The Driller Killer was cool when I was thirteen, despite being greatly inferior to its contemporaries. I gave this one a rewatch in my journey thru the Video Nasties, and nearly ten years later I still hate it. Most might regard The Ghastly Ones, which I haven't seen yet, as the worst, but I quite like Andy Milligan's work, so we'll see.

I Saw the Devil

Two word review: "Holy Shit"

Until the Light Takes Us

Probably the best doc on Norwegian Black Metal. It won't give the whole story, nothing will. I've been learning about black metal on and off since I was thirteen, and still regularly learn new info. it's not a topic you learn about overnight. Nobody knows everything about it, not even the people who were there most likely.

The Killer Shrews

Very underrated "last stand" horror movie. Setup is crap, but payoff is well worth it.

Dick Tracy

Decent, enjoyable cliffhanger serial. Looking forward to watching the sequels.

Escape Plan

Couldn't get into it. Probably a decent movie, it just wasn't my thing.

90 Day Fiancé: Season 1

The truncated season length definitely helps. I feel like seasons 2 and 3 only had 30 minutes of content per 40 minute episode, most likely due to the longer seasons.

Chargeman Ken!

Probably the worst anime ever. Definitely so bad it's good.

Compliance

Do people not realize this actually happened? That's what makes it so disturbing.

Kimba the White Lion

Definitely a classic. Worth watching for historical value, but not much else. Doesn't hold up very well.
