Willy's Wonderland

 Willy's Wonderland is the neon lit, satanic love child of Child's Play, The Banana Splits, and Mandy. In fact as far as the past decade of Cagesploitation flicks, this might be my favorite. It's fast paced, funny, and bloody, with a love of soda and pinball. This is exactly the flick i wanted it to be, and with the proposed sequel i say fuck yes....or like Cage, nothing at all!

The Banishing

 The Banishing is atmospheric, and it is unique. I love the idea of mirror universes, and by that i mean a universe within a mirror....only here they missed the target. It feels like The Haunting of Bly Manor mixed with Us only not as great....or good.....or passable. It is a weaker Shudder film for sure but i wasn't bored by it, it kept me intrigued but the payoff felt unworthy and the journey to the destination wasn't thoughtful enough.

Bad Trip

Bad Trip is one of the funniest films in a long time, start to finish hilarity. Much like Borat or Bad Grampa it is a hidden camera film with plot. it's a bromance twist on romantic comedies. This is Eric Andre at his best but Tiffany Haddish steals the show. Her destroying shit is pure fucking gold. It works as both a comedic film and a Jackass esque movie. It's a shame it didn't get to play in theatres(it was picked up by Netflix after Covid canned the theatrical run) cause seeing flicks like this with a crowd is the best, but regardless of how you watch it, it brings non stop laughs.

Solar Opposites Season 2

 The second season of Solar Opposites was even funnier, bloodier and more absurd that the first. Way more science fiction is jammed in to this season,  the jokes give zero fucks this year and the ant farm yet again carries the series and actually has a continuity. 

Resident Alien

 Resident Alien isn't just one of the best shows of the year it is also one of the funniest and one of the most heart felt. In fact it is one of the funniest shows in some time and also one of the most heart felt in some time, there is a perfect balance, so much that the humor doesn't distract you from the drama it just feels oddly real. Also as the title suggests, it is a science fiction show, and one of the best for that genre as well. The cast is amazing, and even though an alien is the main character, the show becomes about the town and its people, these are lovable and super well developed characters. It is a coming of age story with issues and it turns a hilarious sci fi series into something very human!

Godzilla vs Kong

 Godzilla vs Kong was everything i wanted it to be. It is fast paced so the plot doesn't drag, the human characters are likable yet they are secondary here, and the monster aspects are badass. This is the best of WB's Godzilla trilogy, and it might even be better than Skull Island. This is Adam Wingard busting out his Kaiju action figures along with some Johnny Quest toys and having a blast. A neon drenched fantasy that is under two hours, this is basically a perfect summer blockbuster just released in the spring. I can only image how great the scope and sound is in Imax. HBO Max does it again!
