    I only got the Pixel 1 last month and that was only because the battery in my Nexus 6P went to utter shit when it snowed. It started shutting down after 15 mins use.

    That is shit. I switched to pixel after my old phone stopped working due to weather when they first came out. Really like the second iteration. Just can't see purchasing a new 600$ phone every year.

    You would think that a movie which combines the gritty cop drama genre with D&D like fantasy characters, all as a covert way to cry yet again about racism, would suck. But this is actually a decent movie. Worth a watch.

    Bushwick

    The movie starts off with two young adults and their inane banter as they leave the subway. They notice that it's pretty empty, and when they get to street level, it's apparent that some sort of militia / terrorist siege has happened to their little community in the time it took to ride the subway. Bushwick is another sub-neighborhood of Noo Yawk City, since five burroughs isn't apparently divisive enough. The big star of this movie is Dave Bautista, who plays the stereotypical ex army guy living at the bottom rungs of society to punish himself after losing everything. The movie plays in real time and follows Bautista and the girl from the beginning of the movie as they attempt to find a way out of the war zone their neighborhood has become. The movie has good pacing and nothing too ridiculous in the action sequences. It's only about 90 minutes long too, so you aren't wasting a lot of time if you hate it. The Gerry recommends.

    Just give me all the bacon and eggs you have. Wait, wait. I worry that what you just heard was "Give me a lot of bacon and eggs." What I said was, "Give me all the bacon and eggs you have." Do you understand?

    The Drop

    Gandolfini’s last film, also starring Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace. Fairly standard criminal underground /mob movie. Good in parts but it’s mostly just carried by Hardy.

    Hardy is just tremendous, in general. Every character he plays is so different. He does a voiceover in the beginning and I’d never know it was him if they didn’t show him the rest of the movie.

    3 / 5


    The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    Was looking forward to this as Yorgos Lanthimos is such a unique filmmaker. In The Lobster, everyone had a weird, stunted affectation to their line delivery, and I chalked it up to it being just an odd world unlike ours. However, this movie is set in seemingly modern normal times, and everyone has the same delivery. This just seems to be his thing I guess. I’m wondering if it’s the same in Dogtooth, and I just didn’t notice since it’s in another language. I’ll have to watch it again.

    It takes a while to get going, but all the setup is worth it once the conflict kicks in. Great tension and a good score to set the tone. I liked this less than Dogtooth of The Lobster, but it’s still unique enough to check out. Great stuff from Firth and Keoghan. Definitely some scenes I’ll never forget, like his others.

    3 / 5


    I, Tonya

    This was a lot of fun. Almost mockumentary style, since it’s heavily based off of existing interviews. Lots of 4th wall breaking and commentary over top. Well done and stylized, but not overly so to where it’s distracting. These are some of the weirdest people to have ever run into each other. This will probably get acting nominations.

    Not all of us can run a scrapyard/compost/corn maze for a living.

    I tried to make a corn maze out of cars, but after that kid was crushed by a Grand Torino they made me close it down

    Shape of Water was decent. Bit bizarre but sweet.
