The Borat Sequel is coming in 11 days.



This is what most intrigues me:

We’ve learned from sources that Trump and Epstein’s relationship, as well as the coronavirus, all figure into the main narrative with cameos from Mike Pence, Rudy Giuliani, and more best left unspoiled. We’ve also learned that one of the yet-to-be-revealed cameos could potentially derail a political career, and we imagine some backlash and lawsuits will follow.

He often wears a disguise, so the person whose political career may derail may not even know yet he was caught at something.

I just watched this and was compelled to write the following rant:





Normally, my rants revolve around society and/or idiots in casinos. Today, however, I am prompted to write a review of the Blumhouse/Amazon movie “The Lie”.

Purportedly, this is a “horror” movie - alas, it is not.

Also, purportedly, this is a “psychological thriller - alas, it is not.

What this is is perhaps the worst movie I have seen since Paul Blart 2.

The acting was perfectly fine, the directing was perfectly fine, the cinematography was perfectly fine — you know what was NOT perfectly fine - the “twist” ending.

Immediately after watching this movie, I went on YouTube to check out the reviews. While most agreed with me that the movie was weak, not one YouTube reviewer pointed out the one thing that made the “twist” ending utterly ridiculous:

The twist: the girl who was dead is really alive and just took some “me time” to go see her boyfriend.

Well, you might say: “OK, it’s not the best plot twist in the world but it seems plausible”

NO - IT IS NOT PLAUSIBLE - DO YOU KNOW WHY?!?

Well, I will tell you why - and this is what strained incredulity when I was watching the YouTube reviewers…THE MOVIE SHOWS THAT THE GIRL IS DEAD - washed up on the banks of a river, basically colored blue from the snow, water, ice and freezing weather - completely wet and torn up.

Yet, in the big “twist” reveal - she walks in wearing the same exact clothes, looking perfectly healthy.

Did every single YouTuber who reviewed this movie all miss the scene where they showed the girl laying dead on the river bank?


I lost IQ points watching this movie and lost even more watching the YouTube reviews thereof.

I found a bunch of reviews on Twitter of people asking how she could be alive when they showed her dead body - the premise of the twist is that she was never pushed into the icy river in the first place lol

In 1950 Sunset Boulevard opened with
the main character at the bottom of
a swimming pool, dead. Yet he's
the one narrating the movie. "Wanna
know know how I got here? I'm gonna
tell ya." This really ticked people off.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Right, but, ultimately, in Sunset Boulevard, Joe is actually dead and doesn't reappear in present time as alive despite being shown as dead
