I was browsing through the free Video On Demand shit I get with my Dish Network. Came across this one movie where the description sounded so outlandish that I figured it'd be worth a watch.

Juan of the Dead - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1838571/

The entire movie is in spanish with english subtitles. So the basic idea is that a zombie apocolypse has hit the island of Cuba. To take advantage of the situation, Juan and his best friend start a zombie killing business.

Quote from: IMDB
A group of slackers face an army of zombies. The Cuban government and media claim the living dead are dissidents revolting against the government.

Usually I'd find it kinda hard to laugh at a movie where I have to read everything in subtitles. But god damn if this wasn't funny as hell in spite of that. It's not constantly start-to-finish hilarious. It's kind of a black comedy, and those movies never work like that anyway. But when it IS funny, it'll make you shit your pants laughing.

Seriously, if you have the opportunity to watch this, do so. If you have Dish, it should probably be available on demand at least until september.

Been a long time since the last time I saw this one.

I'm Gonna Git You Sucka

A Keenan Ivory Wayans parody of blaxploitation movies. My favorite scene from the movie (0:00 until 0:19):

I thought that Venom was pretty good. I also enjoyed Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I know, I'm behind on the times. Christopher Robin was cute and I enjoyed it.

"The Ballad of Buster Scruggs"

https://www.netflix.com/title/80200267

Coen brothers movie. Watched it a couple nights ago (it's a collection of 6 short stories threaded by a common theme). I'm still processing it. Definitely worthwhile if you're familiar with (and enjoy) their oeuvre. (Blood Simple, Raising Arizona, Fargo, Burn After Reading, No Country for Old Men; etc.)

Amazing they were able to clean up 100-year-old footage to such a level of fidelity

(I've only seen the trailer so far, not the whole documentary.)

This thread from someone having grown up in the USSR lauding the authenticity of the Chernobyl miniseries on HBO prompted me to give it a watch, and it's rather fascinating. Would recommend.

Yes, if you're fortunate to have one of the new RTX video cards. (I don't, so I'm watching people stream raytraced Q2 on twitch instead.)
