  1. … I might need to check out Boss Level, it sounds properly popcorn-y.

    As for Arrival, nobody ever made a mistake casting Forest Whitaker in anything. And Renner’s pretty good in it too! (I feel like Renner doesn’t have a lot of range, but as long as he’s not asked to step outside of it he can do good work. Mind you I’m one of those weirdos who kind of likes his Bourne-spinoff movie.)

    1. Pretty much any Joe Carnahan movie is worthy of much popcorn.

      I think Renner is capable of more, but nobody’s figured a way to tap into that except for Kathryn Bigelow. And yeah, his Bourne-series work is pretty OK!

      Renner’s interactions with his fanbase are wild, though: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/05/style/jeremy-renner-app.html
