Bumblebee was fine. Good, even?! Definitely a glimpse into the timeline where Michael Bay didn't get first dibs on adapting that franchise to make it trash. It was a very kid friendly movie for sure, with little actual consequences and violence. I do appreciate how minimal the male romantic interest ended up being. Fun fact: the movie was written by a woman, and it shows.

I watched Tombstone for the first time in nearly 15 years. That is such an absolute Murderer's Row of a cast, jeez, and not a bad scene in the whole movie.

Saw Ralph’s Amazing Adventure in the Land of Brands it was pretty good but controversial opinion ((it could have used less brands))

I have watched two parody movies from the mid 2000s in the past two days;

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy is the sort of movie that works best if you just remember it being very funny and making no action to rewatch the film to confirm that. Because, despite some solid ad-libbing from Will Ferrell, it has not aged well at all.

Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, on the other hand, is a movie I had never seen before and had me laughing uproariously throughout. It's a pitch-perfect (no pun intended) parody of every single music biopic ever made. Every inch of the movie is perfect.

If only I spent more time being a better father to you, and less time training my body and mind to kill you with a machete

My friends talked Walk Hard up for a long long time before I got a chance to watch it. Surprisingly, it managed to live up to my lofty expectations.
