    A film 28 years in the making!

    In less than 15 minutes, I explain Twin Peaks better than anyone has online, as far as I’ve seen.

    While I’ve read, heard, and watched theories that were interesting and entertaining, I’ve never found anything that quite broke Twin Peaks down the way that seemed possible to me after The Return.

    I’ve watched Twin Peaks since the air date of the first episode of Season 1 on network television. Ever since, I’ve been thinking about Twin Peaks and it’s mysteries and, while The Return certainly adds new ones, I think it holds the key to crack open the case of the whole mythology.

    I’m primarily doing this to entertain and have a sense of humor about my favorite show.

    I’m secondarily doing this to explain how Twin Peaks isn’t just random nonsense, which is the criticism I’ve heard from every single person who doesn’t like it. These 15 minutes show that if you think the show is just “weird for weird’s sake,” “has no story,” “doesn’t make sense,” or “is boring,” then I made this specifically for you, to tell you why you’re an idiot.

    Thirdly, I’m doing this for fans, like me, who have poured over everything related even remotely to Twin Peaks in a concerted effort to continually relive their favorite show. I thought I’d give you more content to enjoy along with all the rest.

    If you disagree with any of the theories presented in my movie, David Lynch’s thoughts on product placement should summarize my response.

  • Greaser Reviews Blade Runner 2049

    The greaser's review and analysis of Blade Runner 2049 (2017.)

    Directed by: Denis Villeneuve

    Written by: Hampton Fancher and Michael Green

    Director of Photography: Roger Deakins

    Music by: Benjamin Wallfisch and Hans Zimmer

    I've had complicated thoughts about Blade Runner 2049 since I first saw it at The Arclight in Hollywood when it came out.

    My Citizen Kane is the original Blade Runner from 1982.

    In this review, I discuss why I think the new Blade Runner is a great movie, but also not nearly as good as the original Blade Runner.

    I also discuss the new film's themes, which run the gamut from existential to political, in my estimation.

    I spoil the entire movie, so if you don't want spoilers and the warning at the start of this film doesn't dissuade you, don't watch this.

    Let me know what you think about Blade Runner 2049 and how you think it compares to the original Blade Runner.

  • Greaser Reviews The Matrix

    My friend Mike was kind enough to invite me to a screening of a 35mm print of The Matrix.

    It was at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills.

    I've been inspired lately by my friend, Hero Bishop, and his YouTube show called "Nerd x Core."

    Watching how passionate Hero is about his content got me stoked, so I offered to help him create a little content here and there for Nerd x Core.

    After seeing The Matrix at the Academy, which was one of the coolest experiences of my life, my feeling about Hero plus my excitement from seeing The Matrix in 35mm coalesced and I decided to put together this film.

    Hope you enjoy.
