no review or anything, but I went and saw Jurassic World: fallen kingdom. I went to the bathroom during the previews. When I came back a woman stopped me. She wanted to know if I had gone to talk to a manager and ask why the movie didn't start exactly at 12:30 like the sign said. I was rather flabbergasted.

In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the *new*. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends. Last night, I experienced something new: an extraordinary meal from a singularly unexpected source. To say that both the meal and its maker have challenged my preconceptions about fine cooking is a gross understatement. They have rocked me to my core. In the past, I have made no secret of my disdain for Chef Gusteau's famous motto, "Anyone can cook." But I realize, only now do I truly understand what he meant. Not everyone can become a great artist; but a great artist *can* come from *anywhere*. It is difficult to imagine more humble origins than those of the genius now cooking at Gusteau's, who is, in this critic's opinion, nothing less than the finest chef in France. I will be returning to Gusteau's soon, hungry for more.

You should of told her yes, you did go to talk to the manager about the movie not starting on time. You should've gone on to tell her the manager was a huge asshole and said he was adding on twenty more minutes of previews because I complained. You should've encouraged her to write a strongly worded letter to corporate about movies not starting on time.

If you like basketball, Uncle Drew is well worth the ticket price. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Over the weekend the Russo Brothers cinematographer updated his website resume with Avengers 4, except he didn’t write “Avengers 4,” he wrote what appears to be the actual title. I’m going to spoiler it because it’s a reference to a key line of dialogue from Infinity War.

Spoiler:
Avengers: Endgame

Holy shit! I just found out Pacino's going to be in Tarantino's new Manson film. This, coupled with the upcoming Scorsese and Pacino's on another roll. I hear Paterno's a decent movie, too.

Pacino's been in some garbage recently, namely Misconduct and Hangman. But overall, he's managed to keep doing respectable work.

Thinking of De Niro here. Everyone needs to watch The Wizard of Lies. His performance as Madoff is one of the best he's given in I don't know how long. Maybe What Just Happened was his last best performance? Stone was excellent, too. So was Being Flynn and Silver Lining's Playbook. Lots of crap though. But I'll watch him (and Pacino) in anything!

Boy, I'm excited for The Irishman!

When he gives Bradley Cooper a pep talk at the end of Silver Lining's Playbook to go and get Jennifer Lawrence, it gives me chills every time
