I really wanted to give this a higher rating, but I just did not understand why they needed to remove so many things from the novel in the transition to film. Why did they need to change character names, or write out characters all together that easily could have fit? I know it's cliche to complain about books being better, but this film is way too toned down in scope and humor, and that's a damn shame because the interaction between the two main characters is wonderful in the book. And honestly why the fuck did you change the name of the dog? Why did they take out the huge twist at the end of the novel? I just don't get it at all to be quite honest. Overall, I enjoyed it very much, but at a price I guess given the fact it's a poor translation of a great and creative novel.

Hmm...guess it's a good thing I haven't read the book yet for John Dies at the End. Still, glad to see you got some enjoyment from it. And now that I know it's streaming I'll have to add it to my queue to watch again in the near future.

It's a pretty great read, the sequel not nearly as much. I can see they left a lot out for time, but even then I feel like they could have done a lot more with the source material. I think I need to give a rewatch in the near future because maybe then I can give it a bit higher rating.

So cool you watched & loved Sunset Boulevard! Easily in my top 10 films.

Very nice list! I love the gif that you chose for The Avengers. It was one of my favorite (and funniest) parts of the movie.
