Rim of the World is a little bit of an odd film. I totally get what they were trying to do with this movie, so maybe I'm getting a little too old to be watching these types of movies. Still, the nostalgia factor of movies of my past kind of make me have a weak spot for this movie.
Netflix has been killing it recently with the Netflix comedy specials. They came out with Aziz Ansari's Right Now special, which was really good. Then they came out with Dave Chappelle's Sticks and Stones which was amazing as well. Now they've released Bill Burr's Paper Tiger special.
Kingsman: The Secret Service ended on a high note, and it really seemed like that should have been the end of the movie. I didn't actually think that they'd pull off a sequel to the movie. A few years later, Kingsman: The Golden Circle popped up.
I didn't think much of the movie Big Eyes when it first came out in theaters. The trailer didn't particularly interest me but the subject matter was a little bit intriguing. Big Eyes is based off of the biography of renowned painter Margaret Keane, played brilliantly by Amy Adams. She was a victim of the patriarchal time that she lived in. Female artists could not thrive on their own merits because they weren't taken seriously. It's still not a great time to be be part of a minority group of any kind, but back in her time it was a terrible time for minorities.
I wasn't too sure if I would be interested in a superhero TV series produced by Amazon until my friends were constantly hounding me about it. There have been countless superhero TV shows and many have failed. The ones that have somehow done well are the ones on the CW network, like The Flash, Green Arrow and Supergirl. The Boys is a brand new franchise exclusive to Amazon Prime members.
Dave Chappelle's newest stand-up special has released. As many of you have already read online, this stand-up special is pretty controversial. I'm kind of surprised at how controversial it is. We've seen Chappelle's work in the past, and the subject matter that he talks about isn't really new. We also know that he's made a thriving career from speaking his mind.
