Stan & Hammer & Holidays, Ho

Okay so here's the sitch -- as previously mentioned I'm off as of tonight until after New Years. The second of January, to be specific. There's a pretty good chance I might pop in over those twelve days though - there are a few movies I haven't reviewed that are coming out that I probably should, like Karyn Kusama's Destroyer (which co-stars our boy Sebastian Stan here) and the RBG biopic On the Basis of Sex, for two...

... but we'll see how it goes; I'm playing that by ear right now. I might just want to collapse on my apartment floor for two weeks with a tub of ice cream and my Suspiria screener and slip out the asshole of 2018 that route. Who knows? But before that I have all that fun I do want to link to a trio of movie reviews for holiday break movies of note, so let's...

Here are my thoughts on Mary Poppins Returns.
Here are my thoughts on Vice.
Here are my thoughts on Cold War.

The quick take on those three is the two on the outside are terrific and the one in the center is a real turd sandwich, but I'll let you figure that out for yourselves either by reading or by going yourselves, since try as I may I am not the boss of y'all. I mean if I could just boss around Sebastian a little bit that'd be plenty...

Happy holidays, people!

I feel like I still can't reconcile a world in which you, you of musicals hatred, loved Mary Poppins. Up is Down. Black is White. I blame Trump.

Since you are such a Sebastian Stan fan here are some photos that were recently on the greek press. Sebastian Stan and Denise Gough naked on a motorbike in the streets of Athens filming a scene for the film "Monday".
