I don’t think we can be friends anymore.
Watched the Weird Al movie last night. As a fan of his I enjoyed it a lot although I thought the first half was quite a bit funnier than the second half. It was also cool to see who popped up in bit parts–Emo Phillips, Michael McKean, Jack Black, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Conan O’Brien among others.
And as someone who listened to his show back in the day I now want my Dr. Demento movie.
I grew up in a Ray Stevens family, so with virtually zero context for Weird Al I suspect the movie will be a fun watch.
For those eagerly anticipating it like me: Glass Onion (the Knives Out sequel) will be in theaters for a limited run during the week of Thanksgiving before coming to Netflix a month later. I just booked tickets for that Wednesday.
I’ve been a longtime Weird Al fan, but for a long time I struggled to imagine exactly what this movie would be, based on the various Internet news that trickled out.
Having seen it now, it is 100% what you should get if you combine the folks at Funny or Die with the folks who made UHF.
Glass Onion: Meh.
That might be too kind.
I never understood the hype around “Knives Out”. Turned it off half way through.
I was never at risk of turning it off but I wouldn’t rate it higher than “ok”
It’s one of those movies that I started with around 70 minutes left in a flight and never finished. I’m curious, sure, but not all that put out without knowing how it ended.
