The Author reluctantly reviews some forgettable sequels and offers his unbiased opinions on 39 stinking movie trailers.

"The relationship between Bruce and Barbara in The Killing Joke would be all around deplorable enough if the added subplot didn’t also reek of politically motivated, arrogantly progressive revisionism."

"Where the Ramayana falls apart as religious epic – or stands tall depending on your spiritual persuasion – is in its confused, progressive, and relativistic presentation of the moral code of dharma."

"Much though I would love to exhort these Files’ readers to go and support independent cinema and 'movies that are different', to do so in regards to Wilderpeople would be completely disingenuous, as this is nothing more than another slant on the now formulated tale of a talkative kid warming the heart of a grumpy older guy and showing him he doesn’t have to be alone."

A summary activity log for the first half of 2016 as of 7/11:

* About 226 new movies watched to completion or long enough to rate (e.g. Finding Dory and The Purge)
* Approximately 192 albums listened to most of the way, not accounting for albums I heard that didn't motivate me to save a single song.
* Almost done with Cat's Cradle; Hellboy: Seed of Destruction and Wake the Devil; American Born Chinese; the Good Parts Version of the Ramayana.
* Bioshock Infinite; Uncharted 1 and 2; Batman: Arkham Asylum, I think
* 17 blogs written (not counting the IMDb update and Cycling LA alert)
