Mortdecai made me genuinely angry when I watched it. I think it's the only movie I've ever watched that I found so bad that I was mad that I did.

My answer is the movie I mentioned above, Be Cool. I don't think it's a well written or well made movie, I fully recognize and understand it's flaws, but I've definitely watched it more than I have Get Shorty, which is objectively a better film in every way. I just enjoy it, in spite of myself... and itself.

Like I said, I wasn't expecting to enjoy Mortdecai as much as I did.

I liked Be Cool. Maybe more than Get Shorty. Too bad it didn't have Gene Hackman in it.

I still remember being very upset when Robert Pastorelli overdosed. I enjoyed his acting so much, especially in the America remake of Cracker. I think Be Cool was his last movie.

Pootie Tang. It's a great absurdist comedy that I've almost lost friends over. I had Dave Attell sign my copy and he mocked me for owning it.

Pootie Tang is a very good bad movie. It's dumb, but it's a hell of a lot of fun.

He was good in it, but I also enjoy The Rock's enthusiasm as well.

In addition, my Mom's good friend's son directed it (Peter Berg), so there's that.

Caught Wonder Woman last night, very entertaining flick and Gal Gadot is simply mesmerizing, I couldn't take my eyes off of her the entire movie.

Peter Sallis, who voiced Wallace in the Wallace & Gromit shorts and feature movie has died. He was 96.

I rewatched this recently, it truly is one of the best scenes in a film. Gene Hackman is one of the all time greats.

Aside from the characters we've already seen, I have no idea who is who or what is what in this movie, but I absolutely want to see it.

RIP Adam West. The world seems a little less fun all of the sudden.

That's an effective trailer, but apparently the new Marvel mandate is that everything must carry some type of Guardians of the Galaxy aesthetic?

Coogler did a pretty good job with Creed, which seemed like well worn territory at the time. Optimistic he'll do the same with this.

I wish they had just started the entire DC universe with Wonder Woman.

The fact that this one is making a killing while actually making audiences happy should auger a new direction for the series. Just one more Snyder pile to get through.

Sounds like a lot of reshoots are happening with Justice League, so perhaps Joss can salvage it.

RIP. He lived a long, good life. I bought the entire Batman 60s series on blu-ray last summer. West was an amazing Bruce Wayne. The dramatic pauses he took added so much to the portrayal of the character, I really think he was the only actor on the planet who could have pulled off that role. Here's an audition tape with Lyle Waggoner auditioning for Bruce, just compare it to how West reads his lines. He explains his approach to the intricacies at the end of the video:
