I Wrote These Things: Weeks Ending 2/17
Yikes, I let this go a bit.
First and foremost, big new cover story on the final effects of Oscar nominations and wins.
Dug a bit into The Great Wall, and the controversy around it.
I reviewed John Wick: Chapter 2, which is great.
I also reviewed The LEGO Batman Movie, which is also great.
I wondered what kind of Oscar show they should even have this year.
I had some great ideas about who should direct The Batman!
I reviewed The Comedian, and dug a bit into our current lives-of-comedian overload.
Another swing and a miss: Ricky Gervais's rather desperate reanimation of David Brent, Life on the Road.
There's a new recut and restoration of Beat the Devil, so I wrote about that.
Also did our annual Oscar nominee priority guide.
For Bad Movie Night, we did a rare new release: Fifty Shades Darker. You understand.
For Second Glance, I took a look at the currently inescapable They Live.
There was, of course, a February indie guide.
And, last but never least, Blu-ray/DVD/VOD guides for 1/31, 2/7, and 2/14.
