For me, Space Jam is bad, but it's so DELICIOUSLY bad and it's SO strange that it even exists, that it has a hold on me. I enjoy it. Not in the way that the corporate powers that spawned it expected me to, but it's not painful at all to me. I don't know if that lightning can strike twice, though. It's like if they decided to make The Room 2.

It could work if they lean into it and go for something akin to Gremlins 2 for the sequel.

Despite it being generated by corporate powers, there’s a surprising amount of pro-union and pro-labor sentiments and Easter eggs in Space Jam.  So in my opinion you can feel a bit less guilty about enjoying it.

Looks like Black Widow is pushed back to November, which is a lot more optimistic than a lot of movie delays have been.

No way. That hurts. Her performance in Jaws really touched me. It's those smaller roles that really help land the punch of a movie you know?

Here's an interview. She's so cute. Cracks me up she says everyone asks her to slap them in the face.

The director of House has died.  Reading his obit, his whole body of work sounds fascninating, especially since it has inspired some contemporary anime hits.  But I'll also remember his surrealist, bizarre, comic booky House.

If you haven't seen it, it is a really out there film.  Its not a bad movie.  Its a great one.  But its weird idiosyncracies and decision to have intentionally fakey effects are perfect for fans of b-movie cinema.  Check it out, its the cheeriest horror film you will ever see, like a child's nightmare.  (Also the inspiration for the killer piano in Mario 64).
